You are on camera all the time in the Colonial City

There are 323 surveillance cameras keeping track of street movement in the Colonial City. The Center for Video Surveillance under the Programa de Fomento al Turismo Ciudad Colonial de Santo Domingo is monitoring all visitations to the Colonial City.

Wilfredo Feliz, who is in charge of the program, says that the monitoring enhances security and safety of visitors, but also is a tool for improvement of services. He said it enables the program to monitor tourists as they visit the area. Many of the cameras are installed on light posts.

The cameras monitor the movements of visitors and residents, the traffic, the use of public spaces and loading and unloading cargo operations.

Felix said that another 200 cameras will be installed soon, made possible by a donation of the US Embassy.
