Downtown Cameras Almost Ready

Minister of National Security Dr Errol CortAntigua St. John's - Minister of National Security Dr Errol Cort has said that the downtown CCTV monitoring station will come on stream this week.

"We have 30 cameras up and they are currently being tested," he said.

According to the minister, anyone caught on camera committing an offence would be prosecuted to the fullest extent, and would face an uphill battle in court.



The plan to install cameras around St John's was in reaction to the increase in crime.

Residents have expressed concern about their safety. The business community wrote an open letter addressing the crime issue and the impact it has had.

"We are presently in the process of completing the monitoring station, and I am hoping to have a very soft opening of that monitoring station, hopefully within the next week," the minister said. "So things are moving along quite nicely in that regard."

The PEST Finds A Home Of The Monarch On QE Highway!

#51 John French II » 2014-06-03 21:42

Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! The Discourse at the Amofah Market at Da Bridge ran long into the night. The Coromantees & Maroons wanted no more, distanced themselves & retired to the Sherkerly Montains away from the glare of the cameras. Many of the residents of Eve's Garden & Lady Nugent decided that they would leave the high life & lights of the City & join their stalwart socialist brother Governor Lord Baldwin 2nd Earl of Bewdley whose second coming was "in a suit of black" & his third in an Urn to the "Happy Ceremonial Grounds" on the Hill overlooking Bendals. Akan wanted no part of this citing the Act 18-6 which the Dame of the House said was a most "Progressive Piece of Legislation!" Igbo reminded of his work founding CHAPA where the Chair has now found a home. Yoruba reminded that the good socialist blade would only dance with Black Dames. The Grand Dame was tickled pink & decided that she would take her powaful mates to Monks Hill since Quote:
Big Brother is Watching You. George Orwell 1984.
Fear not my Good People said the Good Hon. Dr. Minister of Security: The Command, Control, Observation and Recording will be safely housed in the Parliament Building.
Anansi was most pleased. Quote:
Digicel and the Government of Antigua and Barbuda have collaborated on the CCTV project. Digicel is implementing the project alongside Security Centres International and the Avrio RMS Group.

We need to two steps ahead of the bandits

#48 Dig It » 2014-06-03 08:10

Today, we have seen criminals creating havoc all the country.They are not only targeting one particular area to rob or commit a crime...they are roaming around the country and picking their targets like cherry at day or night. They are now carrying 'bigger guns' than the police. I welcome the cameras around the City of St.John's as some relief to residents and citizens. Yet, we need more than cameras to fight crime. And, the public should get all answers regarding whether or not these cameras work or will function properly? The good doctor shouldn't let these bandits know that he's only putting cameras in one area...put them in unsuspected areas too.
We need to get to the "root" of the problem to why crime is increasing and who are the perpetrators behind it. In an island of 108 square mile...why is it so difficult to set a wide-net and wheel these guys in with all their guns and ammunition?

Jonny Fenkay, what is our track record in dealing with tech? Just a few months ago, the chairman of the transport board reported that their accounting system had been down for at least 8 years, and used this as the reason for tardy external audits (last one 2005). We hear Digicel will be managing this system. What exactly is their track record locally? How's the 4G working? Due to the kind of data we are talking about, arn't we asking for trouble by having a private company manage it? What's the data policy? Are proper background checks being done to deal with all personnel involved? Its always amazing to see how we ignore the basics and think tech will save us. What we continue to do is build the proverbial house on sand (no proper foundation). The usual fake solution are proffered and the unthinking sing its praises

We need more details on this system to access its usefulness.
Do they have backup power and able to run during the frequent power outages? Are they free from sabotage? Are they placed in strategic areas to get results? Will they have a trained staff and able to maintenance and manage this system? I doubt UPP did their homework. The Information Technology should be driving this project. If given to the police or watchmen, then its doomed at arrival.

@ Tenman - The Rush To Technology For Salvation!

#44 John French II » 2014-06-03 02:36

Notes From A Native Son Of The Rock! Friends, CountryWoMen, Rastas, has GoAB introduced any Laws that Govern this all Intrusive Technology? As a People were you involved in any consultations on the Guidelines for their Operations? Do they infringe or impact any Privacy Laws on the Books or yet to be passed?
Is This Technology the Solution to the Increasing Crime plaguing the country?
Does A&B have the Infrastructure, the financial and human capital to sustain this Technology? Did this Capital Intensive Project go to Tenders Board? Which Ministry has the expenditure in its Budget? One Day, We shall Get it Right! Just as the Traffic Lights, Electricity & Water Harvesting & Distribution.
47 years of Statehood, 33 years of Independence, Roads are the worst in the Caribbean save for Haiti. Where are the Planners & Engineers? We are being led by a Trader & disoriented black politicos right back into the hands of the colonial masters while the rest of the Black Elites, Petty Bourgeoisie, Intelligentsia, Political Hangers-on, Ecclesiastics and "Edge-up Arrivistes" turn a blind eye and issue not a peep. Digicel & Lime have never had it so good!
Brethren & Sistren, this is the 21st Century. Who did the Risk Analysis? Who analyzed the Financial Management? Who developed a shared Vision & Mission with the People Of Antigua & Barbuda?
GoAB touts that Crime is on the decline! If Pleases, Install More!
Oh Gad! Pray Wid Mi Fuh Mi Picknees!

@ Cool Ruler & Tenman, et al

#41 Skyewill » 2014-06-02 21:10

@ cool ruler I also will not join any organization at this time either. However, I would hope that both you and Tenman become an intricate part of making Antigua & Barbuda better for all who want good for themselves. My hope is that we all can agree to disagree and jointly contribute in positive ways to enhance the Antiguan experience. Your best chance with that is with a Gaston Browne leadership but that's just my opinion. You do not have a snowball chance in hell to do that with the current administration. I am of the mind that it takes both Ruling party and opposition to form a government and bypassing parliament is illegal and suspicious. I also believe that tampering with the electoral process using your advantage of the majority is also wrong no matter what the party. I would like to invite you two very talented brothers to be a part of a sweeping change to end corruption no matter where it comes from...PERIOD

GRAYS FARM MAN, it is clear to me you did not get what you wanted so when the fox can't get the grape he say it's sour. When you can say in 10 years Baldwin did nothing for Grays Farm you need to take your head out of the sand. How many times you have clean up campaign and in one week's time you wonder if the place was ever cleaned. Who suppose to keep the place clean, you or Badwin? Up to the time you have your own garbage truck you still don't have no civic pride. That is just one aspect of the whole picture.

Yes I know of only 1 alp candidate who applied for and got an injuction. If you know anything about our judicial system, you would know injunctions are not given automatically. One must prove why they are needed. Not only as the candiade filed for an injunction, he was sucessful in getting one. This should help explain to you how weak the governments case was against the candidate. As I recall, in one judgement the court stated it will not be helping the government with its fishing experiment

Cool Ruler, Tenman is like the Rodney King jury. He sees his buddies Lester and Asot on video strong arming the local businesses and yet he sees no wrong doing. You are wasting your time trying to convince that guy that the ALP is going to steal everything even if it is nailed down.


Cort clearly stated in the above article that recording from the cameras will be used to prosecute those caught on camera, and yet he is quoting some unconfirmed source that the cameras will not record.

Cameras were used to track down the policeman and soldier that were involved in the robbery and killing at the gas station a few years ago. So why won't these cameras help in preventing and solving crime in Antigua.

some facts

#35 tenman » 2014-06-02 17:27

Taken from the Daily Observer (CCTV cameras soon to come onstream
February 20, 2014 Kyle Christian)
Quote:
The arrangement is over a five-year period where Digicel would have put the monies up front and the cost of the system,” National Security Minister Dr Errol Cort said.

“And the government will be paying Digicel over a five-year period for the cost of the system. At the end of the five-year period, the system goes to government for $1.”.. Cort said Digicel will be responsible for maintenance of the surveillance system throughout its lifetime.

He explained that the cameras will wirelessly transfer video to the police command control centre where it can be monitored..Bostock said the system could be easily scaled up to include more storage or add-ons like licence plate number and face recognition.

I am watching from my vantage point in NY and still have my ear to the ground. Anyway, thanks for the invitation to join your organization but no thanks but no-thanks. When I look and see men such as Asot, Lester, Molwin and Robin the Hood who will become senior ministers if they were returned to government, all I can say it will be same old same old, the comrades will be coming to raid the treasury once more. As if that is not bad, you have a leader who used his position in cabinet to acquire national parks land at peppercorn price for development then he turned around and used said lands to speculate and make millions.

Oh I forget the court said it was not illegal but don’t you find that immoral? Added to that we have Chet Green and the man you will be voting for who presided over the free trade zone and we all know how the comrades were supping at that trough. Me join that bunch? No thank you it would be like joining the mafia

a very soft opening

#32 tenman » 2014-06-02 15:39

Jfii recall an article on these cameras (carried via daily observer)which pointed out that atleast initially there will be no recordings. If one were to check on the main help from these cameras it is to help facilitate the investigation after the crime. What we have going on is the usual sham. They are useless without the recording capability being enabled. Another issue is are our laws sufficient to deal with digital evidence? I know attempts have been made but I am still hearing that the actual evidence needs to be presented eg. drugs and not pics of drugs

Who are the boneheads?

#31 Vicnes » 2014-06-02 14:52

I am no fan of Cort but how can anyone criticize the installation of these cameras? As a matter of fact, I wrote to Lester Bird in 2001 begging him to disband the Defence Force and use the money for surveillance cameras on every major roadway. and also to beef up the Police Force and the Coast Guard. Better late than never.

As for the idiot that posted that the cameras are useless because the bandits wear masks; may I suggest that you take your head out of your ass. The police don't need to see your face to identify you. A tatoo or a belt buckle can do the the trick. The perpetrator's height, built and walk can also do the trick. A car is used in most robberies. The cameras will certainly help in the identification process.

Finally, with this new technology comes new responsibity for the Police. There should be proper safe guards to protect innocent people from blackmail and other misconduct by some of the lawmen.

Leadership Matters

#30 Yes » 2014-06-02 14:27

Yes! Yes! Yes! ALP has years of experience of emptying the country's purse. I am so ashamed sometimes when I read some of these blogs, knowing that they are been read all around the world. I can only imagine what people would think of us as a people who would hear about our leaders who rape this country, yet we are dying to give them one more chance because we think this government did not do enough. If all this money remained in this country we would not be having soft opening of a library so you can make a mockery of It would have already been open. The UPP should not have had to come to office to open Mount St. John, that too should have been open. UPP had to come into office to pay Monies that were never paid to Medical Benifits and Social Security. It is the UPP who had to pay long outstanding back-pay to teachers. these people were not interested in this country then, they will not be interested now. They just want to come and rebuild their bank accounts after much of the monies had to be used for lawyer fees for all the injunction they filed in the court and bribery. lions out of the country, into their personal bank accounts. Then want to borrow monies from other country and the same new leader Gaston Browne said that we do not have to pay back. everybody in this country can't be crazy.

More and better vehicles, Good technicians to properly the vehicles and continuous training for the police. Nothing beats the cop on the beat. Human resources are the most valuable resource any organization could have and with proper training and a good compensation package they'll get the job done. I am willing to bet my last dollar that those cameras will not last long, I don't care if it is digicel or the devil in hell behind it. Its going to end up just like WPP.

The reports from the Willy D hold up was that they robbers had machine guns a, bullit proof vest with markings of POLICE. Now, Cort, what have you and Commissioner Browne have to say about these back chilling accounts of that robbery. How would Police issue get into the ands of these ruthless criminals. Are they Police Officers? Their style and actions show that they may have had military training. Criminals that are sent back to us are let loose in the community without any monitoring. You don't have a crime fighting strategy. You have nothing and you are nothing but a failure.

The opening is not soft, but a VERY soft opening. That probably means it would not be fully operational for another year or so.

THE GOVERNMENT OF SOFT OPENING

#6 GRAY FARM MAN » 2014-06-02 07:01

Last election, soft opening of car park. Still not finish. This election, soft opening of Clinic in English Harbour, Public Library soft opening, roof all in, now soft opening of your CCTV command centre. Errol Cort, you and your Government are nothing but monumental failure. I used to campaign for Baldwin in His constituency. He has done nothing for us. Stanford wanted to help poor people down there and he let his Cooks Pond water brains stop many people from getting jobs and relief from poverty. This time every damn one of you must get out of our Parliament and don't you and CA tell us anything about Lester and Asot. Them bad and after we get rid of you lot we will deal with them. But you first!

These criminals are usually highly masked and seems to be more ahead of our police and Errol as far as crime goes. So tell me how will this camera thing work and how many other small island in this region fighting crime with these cameras with success at the end after millions of money spent? In Wadadli we are seen first class criminals with no fear, cold blooded, heartless who sit and laugh at our police. I find many license firearm holders carry their weapon for show but are not really ready to used them, we are not killers here in Wadadli and criminals have pick this up, that's why they can pull up to a man like Wills in high daylight, a firearm holder and not one shot, thus another firearm on the street. To kill or shoot someone one has to be ready, there can't be any sign of weakness or forget about carrying a gun. How many of these peoples home broke into and not a shot?

Hungry fools

#2 Victim » 2014-06-02 05:44

It is funny to see how all of a sudden you can find the time , money , and will to get thing done . For ten long years you did nothing to protect the citizens from violent crime . I was robbed and shot. Both before and after the robbery I begged for a street light in front my business . Now even yesterday sunday truck full of lights with APUA workers are asking residents where we need them . Just to hold on to power you now find the money to put up cameras and lights . I wish every day was election day , we the would end up walking on streets of gold , while you politicans will become poor because you will spend your last dollar to stay in power . You power hungry bunch of fools . I have my voters ID , my power this once in every five years to use ! So wet your hand and wait for me , as the old people will say .

I Doubt they will work or record anyone commiting any criminal acts 10 days before the elections. UPP had 10 years to put down cameras all over Antigua and Barbuda and waited till a third election date to try and impress citizens for votes. To h**l with UPP.
