CLOSED circuit television cameras (CCTV) will soon be installed in the Vaturekuka Corrections Centre in Labasa.

Fiji Corrections Service spokeswoman Kuini Waqasavou said this was part of efforts to provide a safer, more secured facility for the inmates.

"The service is planning to install CCTV cameras in Vaturekuka and this will be done sometime soon," she said.

"Plans are in place to install the cameras, especially in our bigger institutions and this is to assist the manpower that we have. Also, the cameras can assist in security.

"The cameras have also been installed in Naboro, Suva, Nasinu and the Lautoka corrections centre."

Mrs Waqasavou said they were yet to reveal the cost of the proposed project.

A date for the commencement of the project will be made soon.
