As part of Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn’s pledge to invest in CCTV in Dyfed-Powys, six new devices will be installed around Brecon to safeguard people and properties in the area’s commercial district.
The project, which is now underway, will see additional closed-circuit television cameras stationed on Tredegar Street, the High Street, Ship Street, the Bulwark and the Co-op car park. The chosen locations have been selected based on the analysis of crime patterns in Brecon.
Enterprise owners arranging a CCTV installation in Chester, Brecon and other places around the UK in which they operate commercial properties can hire qualified electricians to new fit systems.
Commenting on the project, the Police and Crime Commissioner stated:
“Three cameras will be installed in Newcastle Emlyn this week, and six in Brecon next week, bringing the number of towns we have included in the CCTV project to 23. I am confident the cameras will prove to be a valuable asset in keeping these towns safe.”
Superintendent Steve Davies, Commander for Powys, added that the new CCTV was a positive step for Brecon, aiding in investigations and helping members of the community stay safe over the holiday season, when the area sees more visitors.
The CCTV project will see more than 120 cutting-edge CCTV cameras stationed in towns across the vicinity covered by the Dyfed-Powys police force, including Powys, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.
The new equipment, designed by the internationally renowned Hikvision brand, represents some of the latest technology solutions currently available for surveillance.
