Durham Police Install WCCTV Redeployable Cameras to Tackle ASB

Durham Police have recently deployed a number of WCCTV’s Redeployable Camera systems to tackle crime at anti-social behaviour hotspots across the town of Newton Aycliffe.

The cameras have been installed at critical locations in the Newton Aycliffe area to tackle anti-social behaviour and allow the police to gather evidence on offenders causing problems for residents which can then be used as evidence to prosecute them.

Since the cameras have been installed, there has been a significant reduction in anti-social behaviour in Newton Aycliffe by more than 50%.

Project lead, PC Mike Welch, said: “This project has been months of hard work and learning by all those involved in making this happen.

“I hope that the installation of these cameras reassures residents that we are listening to your concerns and taking positive action to improve confidence within our community.

Great Aycliffe Town Council’s Mayor, Councillor Ken Robson added: “The Town Council has been concerned at the increasing anti-social behaviour problems in the town in recent years, has experienced an increasing number of incidents in its parks.
