Boost for security

SECURITY measures at the Nasinu corrections facility were last week given a boost following the installation of closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras around the complex.

The installation is expected to enhance the performance of prison wardens at the Nasinu premises in terms of efficiency and surveillance.

"We just recently installed CCTV equipment and cameras at our Suva corrections facility and this created a huge difference in our operations, and this is envisaged to be the same as well in Nasinu," explained Corrections Commissioner Lieutenant-Colonel Ifereimi Vasu in a statement.

"There has also been a marked decrease in contraband entering the facility which has been a challenge in operations over the years.

"CCTV installation at the Nasinu corrections facility began in February this year with a total of 39 cameras set up in and around the premises.

"It was completed last week at a total cost of $173,696."
