The North West Regional Health Authority (NWRHA) is pleased to inform the public that twenty CCTV cameras have been installed at strategic locations on the compound of the Port of Spain General Hospital.
As a one month pilot initiative collaboratively undertaken by the NWRHA, The Ministry of Health and the Telecommunications Services of the Trinidad and Tobago (TSTT), the cameras will provide twenty four hour surveillance of the hospital. This will augment the security measures currently implemented.
The system features camera topology and video analytics that allow for license plate recognition, facial recognition and removed item detection. Dual monitoring will occur both at the hospital and at the TSTT Alarm Centre.
In addition to supplementing current security measures, this initiative will enable an added sense of safety and security to members of staff and all stakeholders accessing the facility.
The NWRHA is committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment for all.
