£18,500 CCTV camera installed in a Nottingham recreation ground

A new £18,500 CCTV Camera has been installed by Gedling Borough Council at Killisick Recreation Ground as part of the council’s commitment to reduce anti-social behaviour, crime and the fear of crime.

The camera is has been installed to offer reassurance to users of Killisick Recreation Ground, the recently refurbished play area and local schools, as well as to users of the nearby community centre and children’s centre.

High quality images from the camera are transmitted to, recorded, and monitored from the council’s central CCTV Control Room and will be used to help assist the Police with investigations.

The council’s Community Safety Team and Neighbourhood Wardens will also use camera to assist with tackling anti-social behaviour, fly tipping, graffiti and vandalism.

The camera is the latest investment in CCTV by Gedling Borough Council, following £90,000 worth of investment in existing equipment in Arnold, Calverton and Carlton.

There are also plans for a further two CCTV cameras to be installed in Colwick using funding from the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Safer Streets Fund.

Portfolio Holder for Public Protection, Councillor David Ellis said:

“Our residents deserve to feel safe, no matter where they are in the borough, and by investing in new and improved CCTV, we’re able to offer that reassurance.

A key priority for the council is to reduce antisocial behavior, crime and the fear of crime, and using high quality CCTV like this is one of the ways we’re helping to deter crime.

We’ve seen great results with our other CCTV cameras and we’re continuing to expand and improve equipment like this throughout the borough. I have no doubt that our residents will welcome this addition as we continue to support our communities and keep Gedling a fantastic place for everyone to enjoy.”
