(PRWEB UK) 18 October 2013
This Is Surrey reports on October 9 in the article ‘£3500 for New CCTV in Horley’ that the council has received a grant from Police Commissioner Kevin Hurley from the Community Safety Fund for new CCTV. It is hoped that the wireless CCTV system will increase security in the play areas and recreation grounds in the town.
It is reported that since the installation of their existing systems over ten years ago cases of antisocial behaviour and vandalism in the area has reduced significantly. Horley Mayor Councillor Richard Olliver believes that the new CCTV system will assist them in dealing with any other vandals.
He told This Is Surrey that:
“Our old equipment was wearing out and we needed to replace it. We are high on CCTV usage – it is good for preventing vandalism.”
Speaking of the new cameras, he added that:
“The new cameras have a wireless link which means we can access the footage more easily and police can get to it easily, too.”
