New CCTV cameras have been successfully installed in key areas in Wrexham as part of the ongoing 'Safer Streets" initiative.
The project was in partnership with Wrexham County Borough Council and North Wales Police in a bid to improve public safety.
Inspector Claire McGrady said: “Throughout the Safer Streets scheme we’ve worked hard with our partner agencies to address all aspects of the night-time economy in Wrexham.
“The cameras are now linked with the existing network, with further live links to be installed in the Hightown area in the weeks ahead.
“These areas have been selected through analysis of crime data and identifying where crimes such as assaults and thefts are more likely to occur.
“Broader CCTV coverage should provide a strong deterrent to anyone intent on committing these types of crime, which have no place at all in Wrexham.”
Insp McGrady added: “The data told us where offences were taking place and you told us through the survey that you didn’t feel safe on the streets.
“We listened and with partner agencies we are working together to improve areas of the town for all with new cameras and street lighting.
