We provide a 24-hour monitored CCTV system operating throughout the borough. Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) has been one of the best weapons against crime. It has been proved effective in both cutting and detecting crime and because of this people now feel safer when they are out and about.
The Home Office states CCTV surveillance is particularly valuable when used as part of a wider crime reduction strategy, thus strengthening partnership with the local police. Pictures from the cameras are continuously monitored at our CCTV control room. The Police are informed of suspicious incidents as they arise and can be directed to the exact location by CCTV operators.
Types of offences that can lead to arrests include:
- possession of drugs
- unauthorised taking of motor vehicles
- public order offences
