Comments Off on Councillors ask for town to be equipped with integrated CCTV camera system

Members of the executive committee of Barrow Borough Council have asked for the inclusion of Dalton town centre in Cumbria police and crime commissioner Richard Rhodes’ plans for a “super surveillance” system in the county, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.

Dalton was not originally included in the extension plans, but the local authority believes that it should benefit from the extra protection offered by a CCTV system.

Barrow Borough Council has managed a public space CCTV system since 1995, however the police and crime commissioner’s office has taken over the responsibility, funding an integrated system for Cumbria.

Councillor David Pidduck said: “We have done it informally and told (Mr Rhodes) that we would not be happy without the system for Dalton and we have made that quite clear.

“We don’t just see CCTV as simple as solving crime. Retailers feel more comfortable with CCTV in their areas. It can be used to find people.

“We will be pressing for the cameras for Dalton.”

CCTV Surveillance has a very comprehensive level of expertise in the field of security installations, delivering high-quality, bespoke installations, designed to perfectly match the customers’ needs.

One of the main features of our CCTV systems is that they are integrated to work with a standard PC monitor via sophisticated CCTV software that allows individual users to set their own criteria for viewing selected footage from particular CCTV cameras within the network. Password and security features limit the viewing of certain cameras to specific groups of people, enabling you to securely manage who is able to see particular areas of activity.

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.

Its site tree facility allows servers and individual cameras to be accessed quickly, and the inclusion of the multi-site viewing facility makes the management of sites more efficient and responses to events even quicker.

Remote management of your CCTV network via LAN, WAN, or the internet is also possible through the CCTV software. Historical footage can be viewed remotely, and DVR setup parameters can be configured.
