Lancashire’s Fylde Borough Council has committed its support to tackle crime within the area with improvements to the current CCTV provision in local town centres.
CCTV devices can be a powerful deterrent against criminal acts and anti-social behaviour, protecting local businesses and members of the public. A recent meeting of the council’s Committee for Environment, Health and Housing saw members agree that cameras strategically placed around Kirkham, St Annes and Lytham town centres must be replaced.
At present, the local authority has a total of 15 CCTV cameras in fixed positions in town centre locations under its control. This breaks down to eight devices in St Annes, four in Lytham and a further three in Kirkham. The security cameras are currently maintained through an arrangement with Blackpool’s council, and they are monitored and operated via an agreement with Wyre Council.
From local authorities to commercial and industrial enterprises, those planning a CCTV installation in Chester, Lytham, St Annes and other parts of the UK will find a wealth of options available. Wireless cameras can offer greater flexibility, while thermographic devices can detect skin temperatures to keep onsite staff safe from infections. Qualified electricians can not only fit equipment, but help their clients find the most appropriate solution to suit their needs, offering advice on the most dependable brands on the market.
As part of the new plan from Fylde Borough Council, four new rapid-deploy devices will also replace the council’s current fleet of CCTV vans operating around the borough.
