CCTV Surveillance system in Calderdale undergoes major revamp
Comments Off on CCTV Surveillance system in Calderdale undergoes major revamp
The CCTV Surveillance system covering the town centres in Halifax, Todmorden, Hebden Bridge, Mytholmroyd, Elland, Brighouse and Sowerby Bridge has undergone a major revamp worth an estimated £680,000, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
The upgrade came after the Council’s Cabinet approved funding as the previous system was installed in the mid-1990s and was outdated. Updates in technology since then mean that the new equipment costs less to run and uses less energy.
It is the latest step in the continued joint work of Calderdale Community Safety Partnership to keep people safe. The partnership consists of Calderdale Council, West Yorkshire Police, Pennine Housing, NHS Calderdale, West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, West Yorkshire Probation Service, the Hospital Trust and North Bank Forum.
The Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities, Cllr Steve Sweeney, said: “I’m extremely pleased with the upgraded equipment. This is an important investment as CCTV plays a vital role in keeping people safe. Community safety is a joint effort between the Council and other organisations. We can now achieve this more effectively, reduce the ongoing cost to local taxpayers and be more environmentally friendly.”
West Yorkshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson, also commented: “I welcome the improvements to the district’s CCTV system. Making positive steps such as this, working with partners, will help people in Calderdale feel safer and be safer and forms part of a wider CCTV strategy for the whole of West Yorkshire.”
