In the 2019-20, Guildford will invest £98,000 in CCTV, figures from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government show.
This is a net figure, minus any income the council makes.
That means the actual spend could be more, as LAs can make money by charging other organisations, such as hospitals or private companies, to use the existing network of cameras and operation rooms.
Simon Blackburn, chair of the LGA's Safer and Stronger Communities board, said:
"Public surveillance cameras have helped bring criminals to justice, increased conviction rates after crimes are detected, and are an important tool in tracking terrorist suspects.
"CCTV protects the public by dissuading crime and anti-social behaviour, assisting police officers on the ground and supporting prosecutions."
