Playa del Carmen, Q.R. – More than 30 digital surveillance cameras are in full operation due to the recently installed Avanza digital traffic light program.
The city has more than 30 cameras placed in strategic points around major roadways to help support surveillance.
Rafael Castro Castro, mayor of Solidarity, says that the newly installed digital system will help increase security measures by as much as 80 percent. He said that the Urban Centre for Intelligence and Monitoring has already made a difference in the prevention of crime as the primary focal points are the three command posts located at the entrances and exits to the city; points where reports of theft and suspicious vehicles are verified.
He said the goal is to place a total of 150 surveillance cameras in key areas in the coming months, adding that the already installed cameras are providing information requested by the Attorney General of the state to complement investigations.
