The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead has chosen security firm Computerised & Digital Security Systems Ltd to upgrade its vast CCTV network. The council confirmed that the project would cost a total of £1.3million and that it will involve repositioning existing cameras and installing new wireless cameras to ensure better coverage.
Cllr Mike Airey, cabinet member for environmental services, said: “We want residents and visitors to be and feel safe in the borough.
“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.”
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.”
