$150,000 Cost To Install CCTV Security Cameras In Town

Installing CCTV security cameras within the urban areas of Nadi will cost around $150,000.

This has been confirmed by the Nadi Chamber of Commerce president, Dr Ram Raju, in a meeting with key stakeholders in Nadi on Tuesday.

The increase of criminal activities in central parts of Nadi, he added had prompted the need to install CCTV security cameras.

Dr Raju said they had held meetings with a company which was willing to provide its services of installing CCTV cameras.

“We want to get this exercise done before the next budget announcement so that through the Nadi Town Council we can make a strong submission and get a slice of funding from the national Budget,” he added.

Dr Raju said they would work with other business houses in Nadi to help fund the installation of CCTV cameras in other areas instead of requesting Government for full funding.

“This should be the main aim to combat criminal activities which have been a success in some areas around the country like in Lautoka, Suva and Labasa,” he said.

Dr Raju added that Nadi shouldn’t be neglected because it was the hub of tourism in Fiji.

“There is a great need to do this because there have been adverse reports of tourists being assaulted and harassed in Nadi which later creates international adverse publicity about Fiji,” he said.

At the moment, Dr Raju added they would focus on covering larger areas of Nadi town before moving to Namaka and Martintar.

“We want to ensure that Nadi is the safest place for tourists and to do business, we need to grow tourist arrivals in Fiji and when we compare ourselves with other Pacific island countries, we are doing better,” he said.
