Uruguay to Install 3,300 Security Cameras, President Says

MONTEVIDEO – The government plans to purchase 3,300 security cameras that will be installed in different parts of Uruguay, expanding the amount of monitoring equipment already in place, President Tabare Vazquez said on Monday.

Some 2,200 cameras will be installed in Montevideo, the South American country’s capital and home to 1.3 million people; 880 will be deployed in Canelones province; 120 will be installed in San Jose province, with most of them going into Ciudad del Plata; and the rest will be distributed among other towns.

With this purchase, Uruguay, which has a population of 3.3 million, will have more than 6,000 surveillance cameras, helping bolster efforts “to make security a valued good for all Uruguayans,” Vazquez told reporters after a Cabinet meeting.

The 3,300 new cameras will expand the security network already in place in a number of neighborhoods in Montevideo and Canelones and Maldonado provinces.

The additional cameras will help officials protect the gains already made in the “fight against crime,” Vazquez said.
