Abington Park Museum must install new security cameras, police says.
Based on the report, the CCTV system of the Grade I listed building is beyond repair and many of its areas are currently not being monitored by security cameras. Thus, police proposed to replace the existing CCTV system with new dome cameras and install new 11 cameras “in areas of vulnerability” around the building.
Nick Gordon, cultural services manager for Northampton's museums, said: "This proposal comes after recommendations from the borough council's health and safety advisor, Northamptonshire's police crime prevention unit and Northamptonshire's counter terrorism manager, who visited the site."
The document adds: "Not only is CCTV a crime deterrent to prevent theft and robbery, but it also deters vandalism that may be intentional or unintentional from the public.
"CCTV will also be an aid used by us for invigilation."
