Case Study Background
Bolton at Home own, manage and maintain more than 18,000 homes across the borough. They invest in improving the quality of their properties. They are building new homes to give as many people as they can the opportunity to live in a quality, affordable home.
Their work goes far beyond bricks and mortar. They tackle poverty with debt and money advice, provide food and clothes initiatives and help people keep warm for less, support residents into training and employment, and deal with antisocial behaviour.
They help customers to remain independent in their own homes with a community alarm service and adaptations and work with volunteer groups to build sustainable communities.
The Challenge - Anti Social Behaviour
Bolton at Home is committed to investigating and resolving anti-social behaviour cases that cause distress to residents of their estates.

As an all-in-one rapid deployment surveillance solution, the Covert Mini Dome combines an HD PTZ camera, 4TB local recording capacity and 4G transmission technology into a covert housing designed to look like an electrical junction box.
Bolton at Home’s ASB Team combined evidence provided by residents with images downloaded from the WCCTV cameras to support its application for possession of the property.
Data from the cameras is shared within Bolton’s BSAFE partnership and is used to produce ASB and Crime stats for the Borough of Bolton at monthly partnership meetings.
“WCCTV equipment is vital to deter crime and bring peace to our communities.”
