Telford and Wrekin Deploy WCCTV Cameras to Target Crime Hotspots

Telford and Wrekin Council, in conjunction with West Mercia Police, has recently overhauled the borough's CCTV provision, including the deployment of 17 WCCTV Redeployable cameras.

The cameras will be monitored from the council's all-new control room in the Oakengates area, where a team of police vetted volunteers will monitor thousands of cameras in real time. 

The rapid deployment nature of WCCTV's cameras will allow the council to target crime and anti-social behaviour hotspots, with the convenience of quickly relocating them should more pressing surveillance requirements emerge. 

Speaking on the deployment of the cameras, Telford and Wrekin's Neighbourhood Enforcement Manager Paul Fenn said: “The all-new CCTV infrastructure provides live imagery and recording into the purpose-built control room in Oakengates” which “provides direct support and response when needed as well as collating evidence and intelligence".

“Those living and working in Telford should feel reassured that this new technology will aid the police and council in making sure people feel safe, as well as helping to bring criminals to justice.”
