Plans For 24/7 CCTV In Paceville To 'Reduce Abuse'
Jan 9 2024 Share

Home Affairs Minister Byron Camilleri asserts that the implementation of 24/7 CCTV cameras in Paceville is expected to diminish crime and act as a deterrent against abuse by bouncers. 

Drawing parallels to the positive impact of police body cameras, Camilleri anticipates a similar effect in Paceville, reducing incidents of abuse. The government’s budget announcement included plans to deploy CCTV systems in Paceville, Marsa, and Paola to combat criminal activities.

Camilleri’s statements follow an incident where footage captured bouncers brutally assaulting an incapacitated man in Paceville. 

Subsequently, two bouncers, Riald Gragjevi and Ryan Zammit, faced charges for injuring the victim, with Zammit lacking the necessary security guard license. 

The Home Affairs Ministry condemned the violence, emphasizing that possessing a security guard license does not grant permission for violence.

In response to questions about bouncer regulation reforms, Camilleri highlighted existing laws and frequent spot-checks in Paceville to ensure compliance. 

Regarding the efficacy of 24/7 CCTV cameras in crime reduction, Camilleri contends that individuals reconsider criminal actions when aware of being filmed. He points to a decrease in bodily harm in St Julian’s last year, emphasizing the potential deterrent effect of surveillance cameras.
