Civilians could help run CCTV surveillance system in Nottinghamshire
Comments Off on Civilians could help run CCTV surveillance system in Nottinghamshire
A police force plans to enrol civilians for reviewing CCTV footage and taking statements in a bid to balance its books, a news report in the local media was able to reveal.
Under the latest government austerity measures, Nottinghamshire Police will have to save around £13m in the next financial year and a predicted £30m plus over the next few years. This leaves the force with few options in terms of CCTV monitoring, one of them being the recruitment of civilians for footage reviewing purposes.
Other provisions include the possibility to work more with emergency services and other organisations. Certain underused stations will have to be closed and the way in which members of public contact the police force is also likely to change.
Careful planning and budgeting is essential for public authorities in this day and age. This is exactly the reason why CCTV Surveillance specializes in developing and implementing video surveillance systems that adhere to the highest security standards, while also delivering very good value for money.
The CCTV software enables “live” footage to be viewed remotely from any or all connected CCTV cameras as events happen and without degradation of video quality, allowing you to monitor your premises when offsite.
