Bahamas: Prime Minister of Bahamas, Dr. Hubert A. Minnis, participated in the formal opening of the Real-Time Crime Centre (RTCC) at the Police Headquarters.
The mission of the RTCC is to implement the policy with the ability to capitalize on its wide and developing range of technologies for efficient and effective policing.
“In The Bahamas, we have combined emerging technologies into our policing operations with the enlightenment of ShotSpotter, Marco’s Alert Digital Billboards, drone technology, closed-circuit television (CCTV), body-worn cameras, and dashboard cameras,” said the Bahamas Prime Minister.
The RTCC will incorporate a broad range of current and evolving technologies. The Centre will regulate assets and direct the attention of sources to high-crime areas, active crimes in progress, large-scale public situations that may require law implementation presence or response, and high profile or high repeat offenders in the association.
Prime Minister Hubert Minnis added, “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.”
