POSGH under 24-hour surveillance

In a statement it said that the move was done as part of a one-month pilot initiative undertaken by the NWRHA, the Ministry of Health and the Telecommunications Services of Trinidad and Tobago.

The cameras would provide 24 hours surveillance of the Hospital and are expected to augment the security measures currently implemented.

The system reportedly features camera topology and video analytics that allow for license plates recognition, facial recognition and removed item detection.

Dual monitoring will occur at the Hospital and TSTTs Alarm Centre

The NWRHA notes that in addition to supplementing current security measures, this initiative will enable an added sense of safety and security to members of staff and all stakeholders accessing the facility.

The Authority says it remains committed to providing a safe and comfortable environment for all.

In October 2016, a medical intern claimed she was robbed and assaulted while on duty at the hospital.

The claims later proved to be false.
