Comments Off on CCTV systems across South Kesteven record 2,421 incidents and lead to 548 arrests

The CCTV surveillance systems in Grantham and across the district have recorded 2,421 incidents that were reported to police since April 1 last year, leading to 548 arrests, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The figures were revealed as the CCTV system across the district, which is based in Grantham, was given an official accreditation.

South Kesteven District Council’s CCTV team has received a one-year Certificate of Compliance after its CCTV monitoring operation was found to comply with the national code of practice.

An independent assessor carried out a review before assuring the surveillance camera commissioner, Tony Porter, that SKDC’s operation of the system fully complies with his requirements.

Cabinet member for commercial and operations Councillor Peter Moseley said: “The cameras give residents peace of mind and help our partners in law enforcement to increase public safety and reduce crime across the wider area.

“We welcome the independent scrutiny of our CCTV operations and I am delighted we have received this recognition. It is a tribute to the hard work of our CCTV team who play a significant role in crime prevention.”

The certificate provides reassurance to the public that the cameras are effectively managed and that information gathered is used appropriately. The code of practice aims to balance the need for cameras in public places with individuals’ rights to privacy.


One of the key elements enabling Stoke-on-Trent City Council to reduce security costs was remote monitoring.

At CCTV Surveillance, we can offer you this service. We have seen it save countless customers money just like the council due to less staff being needed on patrol and lower insurance costs.

The CCTV Surveillance monitoring centre is staffed 24/7 all year round by highly trained operators, all of whom share a passion for security. They can take immediate action on the video footage that they are alerted to, either by using the intercom link to warn away offenders or calling the police and specified keyholders.

Our top-range systems use the latest digital technology to provide real time viewing and control of cameras via a broadband connection. For further security and information gathering we can provide you with facial recognition access control and CCTV software (including a revolutionary rapid deployment kit) and automatic number-plate recognition.

We provide several other security services as well as remote monitoring, such as our System Takeover, where we can take on the time and responsibility of running and maintaining your existing security system for you. All of our CCTV systems can also integrate with our access control systems. For example, this could allow the automatic opening or barring of doors if a certain person is picked up on the cameras.

If you are worried about the security of your premises, we can perform an in-depth assessment with a full spectrum penetration test which replicates real-life threats – everything from social engineering to lock picking and getting past alarms. We can also provide a smaller physical penetration-only test.
