NASSAU, Bahamas, CMC – National Security Minister Marvin Dames says the government is serious about reducing crime in the Bahamas as it signed an agreement with the Trinidad-based AE Tactical for body and dash cameras for the police force.

Dames told the signing ceremony that policing in the 21st century must employ innovation in its best form, in order to achieve the kind of results of safety, security and orderliness demanded of civil societies.

He said effective crime-fighting techniques and procedures were heavily based on accuracy, relevance and timeliness of information received.

“Presently, there is no better way, based on human interventions, to meet this criteria than through technology,” he added.

“Crime detection and prevention is serious, and the government of The Bahamas takes seriously the mandate to control and reduce criminal activities in this country.

“As such, improvements in technology are receiving and will receive high-level commitment from the government to improve techniques and heighten the capabilities of the Royal Bahamas Police Force in its quest to reduce and prevent crime in the Bahamas,” he added.
