£89k spent on boosting CCTV equipment across Gedling borough

Equipment in Arnold Town Centre, Carlton, Netherfield and Calverton has been upgraded


Gedling Borough Council has spent more than £89,000 on upgrading and improving CCTV cameras and equipment across the borough in a bid to cut crime and anti-social behaviour.

Equipment in Arnold Town Centre, Carlton, Netherfield and Calverton has been upgraded to improve the image quality from the cameras, which are transmitted to, recorded, and monitored from the council’s central CCTV Control Room.  

The council say the cameras are able to provide high quality images to help improve facial recognition and identify number plates, which will help assist the Police with the prevention and detection of a wide range of criminal activities that could be taking place in or around the borough.

It also supports the council’s Community Safety team and Neighbourhood Wardens who regularly use the cameras to tackle anti-social behaviour and investigate cases of fly tipping, graffiti and vandalism.

The Councils Community Safety Team work closely with the Police, local businesses and other authorities to keep our residents and businesses safe, and by continuously improving our equipment we can reassure our residents that we are committed to talking crime and antisocial behaviour and ensuring our borough is a fantastic place for people to live, work and visit.”
