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. ■
