Gedling Borough Council has invested more than £15,000 to improve CCTV equipment for Arnold Town Centre.

Four new digital cameras have been installed on Front Street, Arnold, using existing CCTV infrastructure and upgrading the cameras themselves.

The cameras are able to provide high quality images to help improve facial recognition and identify number plates, which will help assist the Police investigating criminal activities taking place in or around the town centre.

The cameras have been installed as part of the council’s commitment to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour and to invest in new and existing CCTV in priority hot spots such as Arnold Town Centre.

Deputy Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor Michael Payne said;

“Keeping our borough safe and reducing crime is one of our key priorities, and that’s exactly why we’re making this investment. We’ve already installed, and seen the benefits of additional CCTV elsewhere in the borough and we’re committed to continuing these improvements.

We work closely with the Police, local businesses and other authorities to keep our residents and businesses safe, and these new cameras will only strengthen the tools we have at our disposal to tackle crime and antisocial behaviour.”
