The cameras are located in strategic policing divisions including Katwe, CPS, Old Kampala, Jinja Road, Wandegeya, Kajjansi, Nansana, Entebbe, Wakiso, Kawempe, Kira and Kasubi. “Installations are expected to be concluded by December 30th 2019.
These installations will aid the police in investigations of crimes and prosecution of offenders,” Namaye said.
Adding that, “So far with the help of the cameras, we have successes in 27 incidents around CPS Kampala, eight around Katwe, six around Old Kampala and seven crime incidents at Wandegeya.”
She says several police commanders, technicians and camera operators have completed training.
While commissioning the CCTV command center at Natete Police Station in October last year, President Yoweri Museveni said the cameras would enhance supervision of police officers during operations as well their response to crime.
President Museveni pushed for the installation of the cameras when the former Police Spokesperson, Felix Andrew Kaweesi was gunned down. The project, which is being implemented by Huawei Technology limited, is expected to cost the tax payer Shillings 458 billion once completed.
