Government To Deploy About 8,000 CCTV Cameras Across The Country To Improve The Fight Against Crime

Government has said it will soon deploy some 8,000 Closed Circuit Televisions (CCTV) cameras across the country to improve the fight against crime.

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia said on Wednesday that government wants the police’s fight against crime to be supported with real-time data.

“We’ve deployed about 1,000 cameras across the country with a central monitoring centre in Accra, Tamale and Kumasi. The three centres will monitor all the 16 regions. So the 1,000 cameras is just the first phase.”

“The second phase will be a deployment of 8000 additional cameras,” the Vice President said.

Government is in the process of procuring 8,000 cameras to be deployed across the country as part of measures to fight crime,” the Vice President said at a Business Roundtable forum organised by Ishmael Yamson & Associates.

He explained that the deployment of the CCTV cameras is part of a drive to digitise the police’s information system. The Vice President, however, did not give a timeline for deployment of the 8,000 new cameras.
