The proposed investment could see High Definition CCTV cameras fitted in 11 towns in the area
(PRWEB UK) 5 December 2013
The BBC has reported on November 28 in the article ‘Dumfries and Galloway CCTV Upgrade on Horizon’ that an investment of over £500,000 into CCTV is to be considered. The proposed investment could see High Definition CCTV cameras fitted in 11 towns in the area, as well as constructing a centralised monitoring facility. The proposed CCTV security cameras could be installed in Dumfries, Stranraer, Langholm, Gretna, Lockerbie, Moffat, Annan, Dalbeattie, Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas and Newton Stewart. Currently, CCTV security systems in Dumries and Stranraer are the only towns where CCTV is monitored 24 hours each day.
The proposed funding is also thought to include developing an ‘integrated risk management centre’ which, alongside overseeing all CCTV cameras in the area, will be used to coordinate important emergency operations and monitor alarm systems such as care calls and domestic abuse alerts. It is thought that this centralised facility will enable resources to be used more efficiently and effectively.
