THE $120,000 worth of CCTV cameras at the Natabua corrections facility are expected to capture inmates in their dormitories on a 24-hour basis.

Fiji Corrections Commissioner Lieutenant Colonel Ifereimi Vasu, in commissioning the new equipment, said in trying to improve the standard of delivery service of the Fiji Corrections Service, technology was the way to go.

"That is why we have already installed CCTV cameras in Naboro, Korovou, Nasinu as well as national headquarters and today (yesterday) in Lautoka," Mr Vasu said.

"We will be installing CCTV cameras in the other institutions because we have noted the vast improvement in terms of security of our premises and inmates under our care.

"This is another milestone achievement for us and we are grateful to be partnering with Professional Electronics Limited for all our CCTV equipment and setting up."

A total of 32 cameras were installed at the Natabua corrections centre premises.
