Malta Police Force will have access to 60 cameras operated by Transport Malta following a signed memorandum of understanding earlier today.
Among the benefits of this agreement will be the Police forces’ access to CCTV systems across the country managed by Transport Malta, which will be used to help assist Police with their investigations, from traffic accidents to fighting crime.
It is also believed that this agreement will help combat more sophisticated criminal activities as time goes by.
Transport Minister Ian Borg was present at the signing between the two entities today and also comment on how TM will be adding 250 cameras across Gozo and Malta over the coming months.
“The implementation of a project is currently underway towards a National Traffic Control Centre that will be larger and better equipped so that this work can continue improving,” Ian Borg said.
“We believe that the people deserve the best quality of life and this improves when people feel safe and therefore have more peace of mind. Our final aim is always for society to benefit and the Authority will fully honour this agreement.”
The agreement was signed by Transport Malta chairman Joseph Bugeja and Police Commissioner Lawrence Cutajar.
