Mayor Ros Jones, said: “Peace of mind is key for residents all day, every day. That’s why I’m really pleased that this investment will provide reassurance to members of the public.”
Portfolio Holder for Communities, Voluntary Sector and the Environment, Cllr Chris McGuinness said; “Investment in this improved surveillance will allow us to respond and react to crime and anti-social behaviour in known crime hotspots. We are looking forward to capturing better quality images which hopefully give us a better idea of would be perpetrators, who will subsequently be punished.
“This includes the use of flexible, deployable cameras which will also be introduced to catch fly tippers in known locations.”
