In an effort to improve the safety and security of Jamaican citizens, in March 2018 the Ministry of National Security implemented JamaicaEye. It is the national closed circuit television (CCTV) surveillance system that allows registered private citizens to share footage from their cameras with the local authorities free of cost.

JamaicaEye’s primary aim is to use digital imagery to detect and deter criminal activity. The programme is also intended to be used in the arresting and arraignment of offenders.

Persons interested in connecting to JamaicaEye should have camera systems that:

• Are outside the home or business and face a public space
• Can be connected to the Internet
• Have an Internet Protocol (IP) based system, preferably, although persons with older cameras will not be excluded
• Have a resolution of two (2) megapixels or higher
