Ipswich ranks high on CCTV surveillance hotspots’ list
Despite not being one of the most crowded towns in the UK, Ipswich ranks surprisingly high in a CCTV surveillance hotspots’ list, with 228 cameras – one for every 596 people – a recent news report in the local media has revealed.
A map produced by electronics firm RS Components shows Ipswich with more than four times the amount of cameras per resident than Birmingham.
The police and Ipswich Borough Council have defended CCTV as an effective and proportionate security measure.
A police spokesman said CCTV was a powerful tool for identifying suspects, witnesses, and vehicles used in crimes.
The force said it worked closely with councils to keep Suffolk safe, and that CCTV was invaluable in concluding many investigations and securing convictions.
CCTV is also monitored on screens in the force control room during live incidents.
