Comments Off on CCTV surveillance system leads to 100 arrests being made in South Cumbria

A new CCTV system that has been in place for less than a year has already led to 100 arrests in South Cumbria, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The £2.5m video surveillance system includes 53 cameras with 12 in Barrow. This was after a successful bid for cash from the government for £539,000.

South Cumbria Superintendent Rob O’Connor said that in just nine months the cameras have made a significant difference.

They had led to the arrest of drug dealers, shoplifters, sex offenders and violent criminals as well as helping find missing people.He said: “Before these were installed my concern when we lost the previous ones was that it would impact on our ability to detect crime. So I was really pleased when the crime commissioner’s officer installed this new system with local authorities. It is obviously state-of-the art. It’s easy to view and easy to capture the evidence to utilise for court.

“The cameras are monitored at police headquarters in Penrith. However, we can monitor the 12 Barrow town centre cameras from the police station. We have a dedicated team in Penrith at key times, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.

“It helps get officer patrols to the right place at the right time and helps us trace offenders. It’s also a very visible deterrent.”
