£89,000 for CCTV upgrades across Gedling

Gedling Borough Council has invested more than £89,000 to upgrade and improve CCTV cameras and equipment across the borough as part of the council’s commitment to preventing and detecting crime and anti-social behaviour.

Equipment in Arnold Town Centre, Carlton, Netherfield and Calverton has been upgraded to improve the image quality from the cameras, which are transmitted to, recorded, and monitored from the council’s central CCTV Control Room.

The cameras are able to provide high quality images to help improve facial recognition and identify number plates, which will help assist the Police with the prevention and detection of a wide range of criminal activities that could be taking place in or around the borough.

It also supports the council’s Community Safety team and Neighbourhood Wardens who regularly use the cameras to tackle anti-social behaviour and investigate cases of fly tipping, graffiti and vandalism.

These improvements form part of the council’s overall plan to maintain a high quality CCTV system to ensure the borough continues to be a safe and clean place for people to live and work.
