PHILIPSBURG–The St. Maarten Chamber of Commerce and Industry (COCI) and TelEm Group discussed the “long-awaited” closed-circuit television (CCTV) project for the Philipsburg and other areas.
TelEm was represented by its Chief Financial Officer Helma Etnel and the company’s CCTV project team members.
During the meeting, TelEm made a presentation on the “system and its capabilities,” the Chamber said in a press release on Thursday. Also discussed were the project implementation, cost, timeline, maintenance and monitoring cost. “It is the intention of parties to collaborate closely with each other to ensure the realisation of the due project. Envisioned is a prompt implementation followed by a maximised use of the system to redress crime and optimise crime solving capabilities and results,” the Chamber said.
The input of stakeholders will be sought in the coming weeks.
