Council install new CCTV system to enhance community safety
Telford & Wrekin Council have installed three high quality CCTV cameras in St Georges.
Following concerns raised by local residents, Telford & Wrekin Council has installed new cameras in priority locations to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.
The new cameras will provide a direct feed into the dedicated control room in Oakengates.
This investment by Telford & Wrekin Council has been made possible through the £2.5m Safer and Stronger Communities project to create a better borough.
Councillor Richard Overton, Telford & Wrekin Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Enforcement said;
“As a Council we want to protect, care and invest. We know Telford is one of the safest major towns in Shropshire but as a Council we know we can do more.
"We want residents to know that we are on their side and will work with partners, including West Mercia Police, to focus on small pockets of the borough that will make all areas even safer. Nobody should feel intimated in in the environment that they pass through or live in.
“The installation of these new cameras that are linked to our control room demonstrates that we are taking action that will discourage anti-social behaviour and reduce crime.”
