More Good news! We have begun beefing up our security. The CCTV Camera project got underway this week with service provider Intersec preparing ditches for cabling and erecting camera poles around the town. More than 100 cameras are to be installed with 24/7 monitoring provided by Atlas Security in Port Elizabeth. The cameras should be fully operational by early December and will go a long way to reducing criminal activity and improving our safety and security.
We have chosen our CCTV supplier, Intersec; finalised the camera placements with some 100 hundred cameras; and our CCTV application to the Municipality has been approved. These cameras will cover our main entrances/exits to St Francis Bay, the main arterial roads from the Canals, through the Village CBD, to Harbour Road and Tarragona Road. We have sited cameras covering certain bridges, high traffic pedestrian areas and the beach. We have also included 3 camera poles with multiple cameras at three major intersections between Santareme and the Port. We expect to have these cameras installed by December. The cameras will be monitored by a state of the art 24/7 Control Centre.
