A new, improved and future-proofed CCTV system is beginning to go live in Telford and Wrekin.
New CCTV system is part of a wider plan to create a safer and better borough. It includes upgraded HD and 4k cameras that are fed into a new control room in Oakengates which constantly records them all and where there will also be live monitoring at key times, including during events.
The scheme which has been funded in partnership with Telford and Wrekin Borough Council, is part of the £1.25m West Mercia wide investment I have made in upgrading CCtV.
I know that fit for purpose, modern CCTV is a key tool to fight crime and ensure local people feel safe. This scheme in Telford and Wrekin is just one example of investment I have made as Commissioner in CCTV across the three counties.
