Two towns based in Suffolk are now reaping the benefits from a cutting-edge CCTV system.
The brand-new CCTV equipment fitted Hadleigh is now up and running, after cabinet members of Babergh District Council approved submitted proposals requesting an investment of £180,000 to upgrade the district’s surveillance measures last summer.
The district council worked alongside Suffolk Police and town council members for Hadleigh and Sudbury, along with neighbouring authorities. The collaboration resulted in the implementation of the enhanced security system to keep an eye on the two towns.
According to the East Anglian Daily Times, Cabinet Member for Communities at Babergh District Council, Councillor Derek Davis, commented:
“I’d like to thank the police and town councils for working closely with us on the proposals – paving the way for further partnership work to help us achieve our common vision for communities with bright and healthy futures.”
Those planning a CCTV installation in Chester, Suffolk and other parts of the UK will find a wide range of equipment on the market. From flexible deployment options using wireless technology to the latest thermographic bullet cameras, the extensive selection can be confusing. However, companies and councils looking to upgrade their systems can look to professional electricians for help. Along with fitting devices, they can also offer advice on the best solutions available and can provide ongoing maintenance to keep them running effectively.
The new CCTV network includes of 20 high-definition cameras based in Sudbury, and a further eight deployed in Hadleigh. All of the devices will now be monitored around the clock by a built-for-purpose control hub operated by West Suffolk Council.
