London Borough of Hillingdon Council

Background

The London Borough of Hillingdon Council manages multiple CCTV cameras that operate in town centres, parks, car parks and housing estates.

Images from the council's cameras are used to detect, prevent or investigate crime and anti-social behaviour. 

Some examples of how the council uses CCTV cameras include:

  • to make Hillingdon a safe and clean place in which to live, work and visit
  • to reduce anti-social behaviour, youth nuisance, drug and alcohol misuse and provide public reassurance
  • to gather evidence for use in the prosecution of offenders and identify persons who commit offences
  • to gather evidence of 'Environmental crimes' such as graffiti, vandalism, littering and fly-tipping
  • to gather evidence of unlicensed street trading
  • to provide support during public events
  • to provide support to emergency service

The Challenge

Antisocial behaviour and the perception of antisocial behaviour is something the London Borough of Hillingdon Council is dedicated to controlling and reducing for the safety, well-being and happiness of its residents.

Issues they particularly target include graffiti, disputes, public nuisance, violence and criminal activities.

The council is also committed to controlling illegal waste dumping and wanted a surveillance solution that would allow them to cover both antisocial behaviour hotspots and areas affected by persistent fly-tipping.

The surveillance system selected would need to be of a high enough quality that those perpetrating crimes could be identified, allowing successful prosecutions.

The Solution

Following successful trials, and an in-depth tender process, WCCTV's redeployable CCTV systems were selected as the highest quality and most cost-effective solution to assist the London Borough of Hillingdon Council in their fight against antisocial behaviour.

The council deployed a number of WCCTV's 4G IR Speed Dome with NPR systems that combine all of the benefits of truly redeployable CCTV with advanced NPR technology.

The system harnesses the wireless transmission (4G/3G/Wi-Fi), local recording (up to 4TB) and 360° PTZ field of vision of the WCCTV Speed Dome range to provide a complete situational overview, while the NPR camera delivers crystal-clear images of number plates in all weather and lighting conditions.

The Result

The London Borough of Hillingdon Council has made several prosections regarding antisocial behaviour and flytipping as the result of evidence captured by the WCCTV 4G IR Speed Dome with NPR.

The redeployable nature of the cameras means that they can be relocated as applications change, and new hotspots can be targetted.
