New £2.5 million CCTV system in Cumbria helps tackle crime

Comments Off on New £2.5 million CCTV system in Cumbria helps tackle crime

The new 53-camera CCTV system installed in Cumbria is already helping police officers investigate various incidents in the initial days since its official launch, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.

The £2.5 million cutting-edge network, placed on high streets and residential roads, covers key locations across places including Carlisle, Penrith, Workington and Whitehaven, and went live 11 days ago after nearly two years of planning.

The cameras will be producing high quality images that are expected to provide better evidence in court, prompting criminals to confess and save victims from having to testify.

Police say staff will monitor it round-the-clock at peak times for trouble, such as weekends, with other trained workers on hand to step in at all other times. All images will be recorded and kept for 30 days, unless stored longer as evidence.

The county’s chief constable, Jerry Graham, has said the cameras will help direct resources to where they would be most effective. The system is being run from the Cumbria Police communications centre at the force’s Carleton Hall headquarters, near Penrith.

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.
