Janet Silvera, who was given her own mandate to serve as president of the Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MBCCI) last Wednesday night, says one of her first missions will be to secure a meeting with JamaicaEye with a view of getting more security cameras for Montego Bay.
Silvera, who was elevated from vice-president to president of the chamber after former President Winston Lawson resigned just months after he was elected to serve a second term last June, says she is prepared to petition National Security Minister Dr Horace Chang to ensure a meeting with JamaicaEye.
“We need to ensure that we get JamaicaEye coming into Montego Bay now. We have written to them and they promised to come, and it does not seem like it is going to happen anytime soon, so if we cannot get them to come, then it is suggested that we go to the commissioner of police and the minister of national security to see how we can get them to come to Montego Bay,” said Silvera.
According to Silvera, JamaicaEye recently met with a group of businesspersons at the Freeport Police Station in Montego Bay. However, she said the entity is yet to meet in an official capacity with the MBCCI, despite several invitations being extended to them.
