CCTV cameras to make Port Louis and Grand Baie safer for tourists


(eTN) – None other than the Mauritius Prime Minister, Dr. Navin Ramgoolan, launched the island’s latest innovation of CCTV surveillance yesterday, which will considerably improve safety and security for both locals and tourists visiting the island.

The capita,l Port Louis, will have 272 cameras – stationary and rotating – while the tourist resort of Grand Baie will have 68 cameras operating on a 24/7 basis, covering the most popular areas and roads leading to the tourist resorts, all feeding into the respective police control rooms.

The security drive is supported by the tourism industry of Mauritius, as well as local communities set to benefit from this crime-watch facility and is expected to expand further across the island to cover other crucial traffic spots, installations, and areas frequented by tourist visitors.
