Docomo Pacific has donated over $80,000 worth of security cameras to the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Department of Public Safety, the telecommunications company announced in a press release.
The donation to the commonwealth's first responders caps off Public Safety Awareness Month, when community revitalization is in full swing. As the government and private sector work together to find ways to enhance the overall island experience for locals and tourists alike, the technology will optimize public safety and crime prevention, Docomo said in the release.
“This donation builds on our continued commitment to the CNMI. Through collaborative public-private effort, we can lessen the burden of first responders, provide improved response times and, most importantly, minimize the danger for both the first responder and our people. A true commitment to service by working better together,” said Pauline Johnson, general manager of Docomo Pacific CNMI.
The Department of Public Safety will use the security cameras in strategic locations to help deter crime and to add an extra layer of security for the local community, Docomo said. The commitment by the Department of Public Safety to serve and provide protection against life-threatening incidents and community disruption will be aided with more visibility when every second counts, Docomo said in the release.
“This generous donation from our community partner, Docomo Pacific, will enhance our capacity to detect and identify criminal violators across our islands. We are committed to the safety and security of our communities. And we appreciate Docomo Pacific's support to law enforcement,” said Clement Bermudes, commissioner of the CNMI Department of Public Safety.
