Guyana to buy more cameras, help fight crime

October 9, 2014

GEORGETOWN, Guyana (AP) — Officials in Guyana plan to install about a dozen new closed-circuit TV cameras to help fight crime in the South American country’s capital and other coastal areas.

The announcement comes amid complaints that 40 other cameras installed some three years ago provide images of poor quality and were not positioned correctly.

Defense Secretary Roger Luncheon said late Wednesday that those problems will be corrected and that new software will help improve image quality.

He said detectives also will now have direct access to the cameras instead of having to put in formal requests with Guyana’s Central Intelligence Unit to access images.
