CCTV network discussed

Swakopmund

11 May 2018 | Local News

Adolf Kaure - The introduction of the closed camera television (CCTV) network in Swakopmund was discussed at the latest police public relations committee (PPRC) monthly meeting recently.

The cameras will be connected via a private and secure wireless network installed and managed by a Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia (CRAN) approved license holder.

According to the PPRC, the CCTV network footage will be viewed only by authorised and vetted surveillance personnel. All surveillance will be done from a single control room and will have staff on duty 24 hours per day.

The PPRC further stated that none of the footage will be made available to the public without a police case number as well as authorisation of the police department and surveillance manager. Public spaces will be monitored and a digital privacy screen will be put on all private residences which will mask the area so that it cannot be removed by surveillance personnel.

The main objective of the CCTV network is to provide the police services with additional coverage in crime hot spots, main intersections and all entrances as well as exits of Swakopmund.

The locations of the CCTV network were identified by members of the police, PPRC and various security consultants.

Residents will be required to contribute a N$10 levy for the next five years to make the project a success in the coastal town.

“With this continued funding from the rate payers, the network can be expanded to cover larger portions of the residential areas, with the final objective to have every major intersection and all public spaces in Swakopmund under 24 hours surveillance,” the committee said.
