The cameras will be used to target hotspot locations associated with high levels of anti-social behaviour, drug-dealing and criminal damage across the Bewsey and Whitecross areas of Warrington.
Cheshire's Police and Crime Commissioner, David Keane, secured £550,000 from the UK government’s Safer Streets Fund which has been used to purchase WCCTV's cameras alongside several other innovative crime-fighting tools.
Speaking on the deployment of the cameras, Mr Keane said:
“I am pleased officers are speaking to residents to find out how they can improve their community to reduce crime such as the installation of CCTV cameras and how to make it a much safer place to live.
“The project is a great opportunity for all residents to come together and work alongside officers and I would encourage people to get involved.”
The cameras chosen by the Force are WCCTV's 4G Panoramic Domes, a 4-in-1 redeployable CCTV system that features an IR PTZ camera and 3 panoramic sensors to cover multiple directions.
The 4G Panoramic Dome provides the features of four cameras but with just one unit to install, one cable to draw and one IP address - all helping to minimise installation time, maintenance and transmission costs.
Having worked with over 457 Local Authority departments and government agencies, WCCTV is the UK's most experienced provider of portable 4G enabled rapid deployment cameras for public space monitoring.
Redeployable CCTV is ideal for temporary, mobile or semi-permanent applications, and helps capture or deter crimes such as anti-social behaviour, vandalism or fly-tipping.
