TALLAWAH MONITOR: Dave Cameron clears the air; Sandals’ new CEO; JamaicaEye is watching…

NATIONAL SECURITY: Introducing JamaicaEye (officially launched in Kingston last Wednesday by Minister Robert Montague), an islandwide network of camera-surveillance systems designed to increase the safety of all citizens and is tipped to be a massive part of the country’s crime-fighting strategy. The over 180 government cameras will monitor public spaces across the country and assist the authorities in responding to incidents, in the event of accidents, disasters or acts of criminality. Close to $200 million has reportedly been spent so far to install cameras in Kingston & St. Andrew, Montego Bay, Mandeville, Ocho Rios, May Pen and Negril. 

SECOND INNINGS: “Of course we want female [physical education] teachers at school, but that was not the issue. The issue is we need more men if we are to grow the game of cricket, specifically for the male side, because boys learn from men, which is a specific issue… The game of cricket, while it’s technical or whatever the case is, requires a little bit more than track-and-field and football.” – Embattled Cricket West Indies president Dave Cameron speaking at the launch of a CWI cricket manual in Port-of-Spain recently 

APPOINTMENT: Former Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Hyatt Hotels Corporation Gebhard Rainer is the new CEO of Sandals Resorts International, per reports. “Rainer’s experience complements our strengths, affording me the time to expand my role alongside the Chairman, as the Sandals board moves to fast-track our development plans,” says Deputy Chairman Adam Stewart. “These are exciting times and we look forward to an even brighter future.”
