The role of CCTV

Sent on behalf of the Police and Crime Commissioner.  

Dear City, Town and Parish Council colleagues,  

Alison Hernandez, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) has written to bring to your attention to the commitment which she has made in her recently published Police and Crime Plan to increase CCTV capacity across the force region.  Alison is offering to provide support to you as local authorities who wish to install new CCTV systems or upgrade existing systems which may require a refit.
The PCC has pledged to provide up to £200,000 of extra funding over the next three years to increase CCTV capacity and to encourage the development of monitoring ‘hubs’. She has said she believes high quality and interconnected CCTV can play a major role in helping to keep people safe. It is also an invaluable resource for the police to investigate crime and enable emergency services to find and help vulnerable people.
The detailed strategy sets out how the support for the expansion of CCTV capacity will be provided, including the criteria which authorities will need to meet in order to qualify for a contribution towards capital finance costs. Please use the Expression of Interest form which will provide the PCC office with an initial indication of current CCTV provision across the policing region and any existing plans which authorities may have to install or upgrade systems. This exercise will enable the PCC to assess the potential demand for support. The PCC office will make contact after the May elections as it is appreciated that the election results may have an impact on the intentions of some authorities.
From May the PCC office will begin work with local authorities to draw up detailed costings of CCTV options, to be followed by the formal application process for capital funding support.
Please contact the PCC to discuss any aspect of the process which has benn outlined.  The PCC team will also be happy to provide general guidance and technical support if this is helpful.
