Croydon Council to consider plans for £1million CCTV upgrade

Post by Ilker - Comfort Zone » Thu Oct 17, 2019 12:50 pm

The plans, which go before cabinet next Monday (October 21), seek to help tackle crime and antisocial behaviour.

The council said it aims to replace its current analogue system with a new digital network. Cabinet approved £1million part funding from its capital programme in 2018, but a further £1million is required for the modernisation to go ahead.

This is the first time the council has upgraded its entire public CCTV network since the 1990s.

The CCTV control room currently monitors 96 fixed and 10 mobile cameras that cover the borough’s main routes and high footfall areas 24 hours a day.

The cameras are placed in locations where there are high levels of crime, including Croydon town centre and East and West Croydon transport hubs

From April 2018 to March 2019 the service monitored over 660 incidents and supplied evidence for 598 police investigations.
