$45M to be spent on security for Dunn's River
More than $45 million is being shelled out by the Government to install a system which they hope will help reduce the incidents of criminal activity at the Dunn's River Falls and Park in Ocho Rios, St Ann.
The security surveillance system is intended to provide coverage to parts of the property in order to reduce tourist harassment, increase the overall security of the patrons and staff, and reduce the incidents of criminal activity on the property.
According to a document tabled in Parliament, the Andrew Holness-chaired Cabinet has approved the award of a US$361,134 (J$41,141,750) contract to EHC Industries Limited for the supply and installation of the Internet protocol-based video management system.
THE STAR made checks with the UDC to ascertain the levels of criminality and tourist harassment at Dunn's River. Despite acknowledging receipt of an email, the state-owned entity did not respond to our queries up to press time yesterday.
