Bahamas: Prime Minister of Bahamas Dr. Hubert A. Minnis took part in the official opening of the Real-Time Crime Centre (RTCC) at the Police Headquarters.
The mission of the RTCC is to provide the police with the ability to capitalize on its wide and expanding range of technologies for efficient and effective policing.
“In The Bahamas, we have integrated emerging technologies into our policing operations with the introduction of ShotSpotter, Marco’s Alert Digital Billboards, drone technology, closed-circuit television (CCTV), body-worn cameras, and dashboard cameras,” said the Prime Minister.
The RTCC will centralize a broad range of current and evolving technologies. The Centre will coordinate assets and direct the attention of resources to high-crime areas, active crimes in progress, large-scale public events that may require law enforcement presence or response, and high profile or high repeat offenders in the community.
“The Real-Time Crime Centre will maximize the likelihood that members of the Royal Bahamas Police Force can respond to crimes occurring in real-time and do so effectively,” said Prime Minister Minnis.
On Wednesday, February 17, 2020 – Dr. The Most Honorable Hubert A. Minnis attended the Ash Wednesday church service at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral to pay reverence to the Lent season’s beginning.
PM also said, “Today, it was my pleasure to participate in the official opening of the Real-Time Crime Centre. We have integrated emerging technologies into our policing operations with the introduction of ShotSpotter, Marco’s Alert, drone technology, CCTV, body cameras, and dashboard cameras.”
