CCTV in Kettering
CCTV What is it for ?
- deter and prevent crime
- reduce the fear of crime and thus reassure the public
- assist the police in identifying potential criminal activity and investigating incidents of crime
- monitor traffic.
Implementing CCTV in the spirit of partnership has served to strengthen links and communications between the various partners.
It also provides a means for others who wish to undertake monitoring of their property without the capital cost of installing their own control room facilities. At the moment a growing number of sites other than the town centre are monitored and discussions are in progress with other interested parties. As the number of partners in the system grows revenue will be generated which will enable the continuing enhancement of the system. This in turn will reduce the fear and feeling of vulnerability.
