Suva Retailers Association President Jitesh Patel says they are looking at installing around 16 cameras in Mark Street, Cumming Street, Renwick Road, Waimanu Road, and Nina Street in Suva to address the issue of crimes in the Capital City.

Patel says this is done in a partnership and is an investment with Bondwell as they are working together with their suppliers to get the cameras in the country.

He says there was a delay in this as they were having negotiations with the Suva City Council and building owners on the places to install these cameras.

The Suva Retailers President says this should be done in a month.

Patel further says by installing these cameras in different parts of the city, these criminals and offenders will know that they are being watched leading to a decrease in the crime rate.

He says they have also had discussions with the Tourism Police on how they can help the tourists better in moving around in the city.

During the fijivillage Straight Talk with Vijay Narayan, Police Chief of Operations ACP Livai Driu highlighted that CCTV cameras need to be installed to keep a close watch on the crimes happening especially in Suva City.

He also highlighted that police are not angels and cannot be everywhere therefore, they will work together with all the other stakeholders to address such issues and crimes.
