Maidenhead City Council has appointed a contractor as its existing 20-year-old network has reached the end of its serviceable life. As part of the £1.3million project, Computerised and Digital Security Systems (CDS) will provide a state-of-the-art wireless centre and add, upgrade, or move about 200 cameras for optimum coverage.
Andy Williams, managing director of CDS, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed as the Royal Borough’s CCTV contractor. Over the coming months we will be installing state-of-the-art cameras across the borough to help local residents feel safer in their community.”
Cllr Mike Airey, cabinet member for environmental services, said: “We want residents and visitors to be and feel safe in the borough. In partnership with CDS we will roll out a state-of-the-art CCTV system to help us do just that.
“We already work closely with Thames Valley Police to maintain and improve community safety and we hope the new camera system will act as a deterrent from anti-social behaviour in certain hot spots, alongside our expanding team of community wardens.
“Unfortunately there are still those out there who wish to commit crimes in our borough but in conjunction with police this new CCTV system will help to identify perpetrators and bring them to justice on those sad occasions when an incident does occur.”
