Falkirk Council has recently rolled out new mobile CCTV units in a bid to improve security and safety in the area. The local authority has confirmed that state-of-the-art mobile CCTV systems will be placed in hot spot areas to tackle anti-social behaviour.
The scheme is part of Falkirk Council's £1million investment in CCTV and aims to capture crystal-clear images that can be used by the police to prosecute those who break the law, as well as provide residents and visitors with peace of mind.
Cecil Meiklejohn, Leader of Falkirk Council, said: “This is a great example of what can be achieved when we work with our partners to deliver digital transformation at pace. By making this investment in the CCTV service, we continue to support the police in the fight against crime and make our position clear - we will not tolerate anti-social behaviour.”
Councillor Robert Bissett added: “There are anti-social behaviour hot spots throughout the district and mobile CCTV can be a useful tool in detecting and preventing these behaviours. The council should also note there are 15 mobile units in the Stirling Council area that are considered a valuable asset in reducing anti-social behaviour.
"The outcome of a recent pilot scheme in Bowhouse Square in Grangemouth saw police and retailers agree that it had reduced the incidence of anti-social behaviour.”
