THE installation of closed circuit television cameras (CCTV) in northern towns hangs in the balance as the authorities work on completing feasibility studies on the location of the equipment.

Acting divisional police commander SSP Fulori Rainibogi said they were working with the municipalities to identify possible areas for the installation of the cameras.

"We want areas suitable for the cameras and this is done as we work towards reducing the rate of crime in the Northern Division," she said.

"We will have the cameras up and running sometime soon but right now, we are trying to sort out the proper location of the equipment."

Similar installations have been undertaken in the Central and Western divisions as part of efforts to curb criminal activities.

Labasa and Savusavu special administrator Vijay Chand earlier said they were working with the police to identify suitable areas for the cameras.
