In an initiative designed to protect local firms and members of the public from criminal behaviour, eight new closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras are to be installed around Bournemouth.
The devices due for deployment will use the latest advances in CCTV and feature zoom, pan and tilt technology. Councils and commercial enterprises alike can rely on expert assistance from qualified electricians for a professional CCTV installation in Chester, Bournemouth and other places in the UK. Certified electrical contractors can not only fit an extensive range of equipment, but can also use their experience and knowledge to guide firms to find an ideal system for their needs.
The new CCTV project has been made possible by funding from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset, after the council made an application via the Safer Street Fund established by the Home Office.
Three of the cameras are set to be placed in Southbourne Grove, while the other five devices will be deployed at various junctions on Christchurch Road.
A letter issued to local business owners and residents by Tony Gleason, CCTV manager for the council, listed the areas as being impacted by “acquisitive crime” but urged any members of the public with concerns regarding the new cameras to come forward. He added:
“After working closely with officers from Dorset Police’s local Neighbouring Policing Team and analysing crime data, we identified areas which could benefit from additional crime prevention measures.”
The dedicated devices will be fixed in place by April and will be stationed in Southbourne Grove, Pokesdown and Boscombe.
