“We will standardize the type of quality of cameras to be purchased and install as part of our CCT program. Businesses and households will be encouraged to sign up to become a part of the camera surveillance program. I am pleased to reiterate that the government has set aside money that will be utilized as a tax credit, I believe it’s $1,000 for the year for any businesses who sign up to the Belize Police Department’s program and agrees to purchase specific cameras that are compatible to our surveillance program that we are currently conducting and I will want to encourage businesses to come on board, help to protect their own businesses, assist in the public program of security.”
Businesses that join the programme will receive a tax credit of one thousand dollars for their assistance.
