Mayor plans to install 20 surveillance cameras for Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — The municipal government of Isla Mujeres says there is a plan to install 20 surveillance cameras in strategic areas around the island.

Mayor Juan Carillo Soberanis explained that the objective is to strengthen security and maintain tranquility in Isla Mujeres, as well as improve reaction times to emergency calls. He says the cameras would be connected to the Public Safety and Municipal Transit monitoring center and interconnected to the new C-5 Command, Control, Computing, Communications and Citizen Contact center, which is still under construction, but when complete, will be controlled by State Police.

Carrillo Soberanis explained that each pole will have up to 4 PTZ cameras, one of which will rotate 360 degrees, allowing for greater monitoring, vigilance and immediate reaction in risk situations.

“It is very important to invest in technology, and with the work coordinated with the state government and the police agencies, we are contributing to strengthen the security that characterizes Isla Mujeres.

“We are doing everything so that in 2020, we will have installed the surveillance points and we will continue to do our part as a government to provide a better quality of life to the islanders ” said the municipal mayor.
