Security camera placement to continue around Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — The placement of surveillance cameras will continue around the municipality, seeing that all areas are eventually connected to the C2 centre.

Jamie Alberto Ongay Ortiz, general director of Public Safety, says that the continued installation of the cameras will strengthen security efforts. He said that now, the Mexican Navy is offering assistance in the field of intelligence and operations, noting that the project should be finished this month.

He added that with the placing of surveillance cameras, safety will be improved as will the response time of police.

Municipal president Juan Carrillo Soberanis added that first, the cameras are being installed in 20 points around the island of the municipality which will consist of a 360-degree camera in addition to three fixed cameras to cover all the perimeters needed and cover approximately 100 meters with high-resolution images.

Once installed, the surveillance cameras will be monitored from the Isla Mujeres Public Security Directorate, which will be the C2 as well as from the C4 in Cancun, simultaneously.
