Dunfermline taxi CCTV scheme helps drive down crime
Comments Off on Dunfermline taxi CCTV scheme helps drive down crime
A scheme that involved installing CCTV systems in taxis across Dunfermline has proven to be so effective that it’s now being extended to other neighbouring areas, a recent news report in the local media has been able to find.
During a pilot only one of the 41 taxi frauds happened in a vehicle fitted with CCTV and the culprit was caught.
In the same period, there were just two other crimes in taxis equipped with cameras.
Fife’s licensing enforcement officer Donald Jenks said the cameras had had a measurable deterrent effect and had improved safety and cut crime. Mr Jenks said 25 operators in the surrounding areas had expressed an interest in fitting cameras, meaning 91 vehicles across the region would be covered.
