SINGAPORE - Sentosa is now under 24-hour surveillance, with CCTV cameras located across the island.
It is part of the Joint Command Centre (JCC), which acts as a surveillance centre and contact point for responding to emergencies on the island. The centre was officially opened yesterday by Mr S. Iswaran, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister for Home Affairs and Trade and Industry.
The JCC features a sophisticated integrated surveillance system that allows security personnel to monitor footage captured by the cameras. This has been integrated with Sentosa's existing system.
"The addition of the JCC to Sentosa's existing island resilience framework is a timely move, in view of the changing security landscape, coupled with Sentosa's rising international profile," said a statement from Sentosa Leisure Group.
About 20 million people visit the island yearly.
