Funds made available to improve CCTV systems across Shropshire

Comments Off on Funds made available to improve CCTV systems across Shropshire

Funding amounting to £1 million is being made available to fund and improve CCTV systems across Shropshire, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The funds have been put aside by West Mercia police and crime commissioner John Campion, who said improved quality of images would help the police catch more criminals, and would lead to people feeling safer.

CCTV is not directly run by the police and the organisations which look after the systems, such as councils, will be able to apply through the Community Safety Partnership, for a slice of the funding.

Systems upgraded or set up with the funding would see footage from across the region viewed remotely from a control room.


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 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.

If you want to reduce security costs today, please contact us on or ring 01480 223955.
