Kirkwall Travel Centre in Scotland is set to reopen following a necessary closure while a dedicated Closed-circuit Television (CCTV) system was fitted.
The newly installed system has been set up with the aim of stopping ongoing anti-social activities that have plagued the centre in recent months. Now, four new cameras will effectively monitor the centre’s waiting area, with two devices positioned internally and another two fixed in place outside.
Representing an investment of about £1,750, the enhanced security measures were deemed critical by the local authority. Council members shut down the centre in early September, following incidents of abuse to staff members and other unpleasant behaviour from local youths.
Councillor Graham Sinclair commented:
“The genuine users and the folk that are working hard to ensure facilities have reopened during these challenging times of a pandemic, only to see that hard work disappear at the hands of a minority who seek to spoil things for everyone.”
Transportation Manager Laura Cromarty commented on the new system, stating that the building will be monitored now with CCTV to address the issues, adding that effective monitoring will require extra workload for staff based at the centre.
