New CCTV cameras are set to be installed at a Nottingsham park as the local government seeks to reduce antisocial behaviour and promote a greater feeling of safety whilst using Ashfield's green spaces.
The funding for the two 10m columns and CCTV cameras was secured through the help of the Ashfield District Council and the Police Crime Commissioner.
Deputy Leader Cllr Helen-Ann Smith Executive Lead Member for Community Safety and Crime Reduction said: “The new cameras will go a long way to helping the Anti-Social Behaviour Teams monitor and pro-actively react to the behaviours we face on Titchfield Park in Hucknall. We want the space to feel safe for everyone and we will stamp out the minority who do cause issues.”
Cllr Lee waters said: “We will continue to deliver on initiatives such as this to help promote feeling of safety in areas of the community that have been identified as hot-spots for troubled behaviour and attitudes.”
The new cameras have a clear view of the open car park, the pavilion area and the areas set aside for wildings. The skate park and surrounding equipment are also covered along with the cafe, war memorial and the open field in the other direction.
