£15,000 has now been invested to improve CCTV equipment in a bid to help tackle crime in Arnold town centre.

Four new digital cameras have been installed on Front Street using existing CCTV infrastructure and upgrading the cameras themselves.

Gedling Borough Council, who have invested the cash, say the improved cameras can provide high quality images to help improve facial recognition and identify number plates, which will help assist the police investigating criminal activities taking place in or around the town centre.

The cameras have been installed as part of the council’s commitment to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and to invest in new and existing CCTV in priority hot spots such as Arnold Town Centre.

Deputy leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor Michael Payne said: “Keeping our borough safe and reducing crime is one of our key priorities, and that’s exactly why we’re making this investment. We’ve already installed, and seen the benefits of additional CCTV elsewhere in the borough and we’re committed to continuing these improvements.

We work closely with the Police, local businesses and other authorities to keep our residents and businesses safe, and these new cameras will only strengthen the tools we have at our disposal to tackle crime and antisocial behaviour.”

  1. The anti social behaviour in Arnold is appalling.
    Upgrade of cameras I welcome but more action is needed. Where are the neighbourhood wardens ? Forgot what they look like. Councillors seem to turn a blind eye on this increasing problem. A lot of talk and not much else!

  2. Good. We need to keep tourists safe so they come again and don’t get robbed. Arnold is getting better and better and this will help. I see us getting more things like museums and a sea life centre in the future as we grow. Our park brings so many and so does bonington house so keep the tourists safe and Arnold grow. Our capital our zlondon.
