Cozumel readying to spend 39.9 million on security cameras

Cozumel, Q.R. — Security cameras are being readied for installation in 20 strategic points of Cozumel at a cost of 39.9 million. Island mayor Juanita Alonso Marrufo says work will begin shortly for the installation of the poles that will be the support of the video surveillance camera system.

The cameras are being installed in 20 strategic points of the city. “The cameras will have a modern system that will meet the needs established by the Public Security Directorate of Cozumel and which will be monitored in the facilities of the aforementioned directorate,” she explained.

City Council Senior Official Carlos Mendoza Quijano said after a bidding process, company Seguritech Privada SA de CV was chosen, “as it met all the requirements for which it will be in charge of installing the video surveillance system with all its accessories.”

He highlighted that approximately 38.7 million pesos will be invested in the acquisition of the video surveillance system and 1.3 million for the electrification of the monitoring points. Amounts that come from the approved budget ceiling of 39.9 million pesos.

“The information collected at the monitoring points will be sent to the control center for storage, safeguarding and backup of the information generated. It is important to mention that these points were chosen based on a consensus by public security and Navy personnel who carried out studies through drones to know the exact location of where the posts will be placed.

“The location of these cameras has been planned according to the need of the surveillance control center to be able to have the correct vision,” he explained.
