(PRWEB UK) 16 September 2013
According to This is Somerset in the article titled ‘Joint Effort Behind Town CCTV Revamp’ published on September 12, the town council and police in Wincanton in South Somerset are looking to update their current CCTV system. The network of CCTV cameras was installed in the town fifteen years ago and consists of four cameras.
According to the report, the system recently received a full service in an attempt to solve a number of problems with the system, after its recent unreliability. Speaking of the current system, town clerk Sam Atherton told This is Somerset that footage is currently recorded onto a CD-ROM which is passed to police. She continued that:
“The system that we have got keeps shutting down and going wrong and the picture is not always clear enough for police.”
She added that the new systems they are looking to install will have clearer images and footage can be downloaded by police.
PC Andrew Brown of Wincanton police spoke to This Is Somerset of how the system is valuable to the town in their fight against crime and how an improvement in the current system would be welcome. He added that:
“We have had great success with the CCTV footage in the past and it’s a real aid in investigating crime in the town centre.”
As experts in business security systems, AlertSystems understand the importance of an up to date CCTV security system. A spokesperson for the company offered their comments:
“An up to date CCTV security system is a valuable addition to any business. As CCTV footage is often a helpful tool in police investigations, clear and high quality images can be important to police in furthering their investigations and bringing them to successful conclusions. Images are often released by police in an appeal for information and so, the clearer the images, the higher the chance police have of tracing those responsible. Modern systems that allow police to download footage can also help investigations to run smoothly and rapidly.”
