Security Cameras Installed in Vestmannaeyjar Islands

Police on Heimaey, the only populated island of the Westman archipelago off of Iceland’s southern coast, have purchased security cameras which will soon be installed both downtown and near the ferry harbour, Vísir reports. The security system, which has been a collaborative endeavour between local police and the 112 emergency line, has been in the works since 2016.

All footage obtained by the cameras will be reviewed by police and only used for law enforcement purposes. According to a post on the Westman Island Police Facebook page, local authorities believe that “…the security of Westman Island residents and their guests will be even better with the security cameras, both in terms of the prevention and detection of offences.”
