Closed Circuit Television (CCTV)
We monitor 177 CCTV cameras across the district. They provide a valuable tool in reducing crime and providing public reassurance.
The cameras are monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at the state-of-the-art CCTV headquarters. 177 screens can show separate images or a variety of set-ups. The CCTV footage can also be viewed in real-time at local police stations.
The cameras are linked to an automatic number plate recognition system which informs the police within seconds if a vehicle has been stolen, is untaxed, or has been used in a crime.
