Commissioner of Police Michael DeSilva - After an unfortunate slow start to the CCTV expansion project, I can report today that significant progress has now been made.
As a first step, the service provider is restoring service to the priority areas that were covered prior to 1st April. That work is substantially complete, with a handful of cameras left to install over the next few days.
