NASSAU, Bahamas – The Cable Beach Resort Association (CBRA) announced today the
completion of the installation of a comprehensive Closed Circuit Television
(CCTV) system, including high-tech security cameras, along the entire Cable
Beach resort area. The CCTV system was put in place as a private sector
initiative to support law enforcement in the prevention of crime in the area.
CBRA Chairman, Richard English,
stated, “The cameras have been installed across a wide area, with
intersecting coverage that will be monitored 24/7 by the local Cable Beach
Police Station using a state-of-the-art wireless system, with the CCTV screens
in the Police Station to be monitored continuously.” In addition to
recording all activity in the coverage area, the system will also serve as a
useful tool in solving crimes.
The new security system’s
coverage area will be concentrated in and around the Wyndham Nassau Resort,
Crystal Palace Casino and Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort areas, in addition to
the surrounding retail and commerce areas, though CCTV coverage will extend
both East and West of that designated concentration.
Added Mr. English, “Anything we
can do to enhance the security and comfort of our guests and residents, deter
crime, and contribute to the prompt and effective apprehension of
lawbreakers, should be undertaken, and the CBRA has taken on the responsibility
to do its part in this endeavor.”
