Comments Off on New CCTV camera system goes live in Turriff

A new CCTV surveillance system worth £34,000 has gone live in Turriff town centre, covering the main business and footfall areas, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The Chair of Turriff Business Association Marj Chalmers confirmed that new CCTV cameras are now ‘live’ with the necessary signage installed and will be “beneficial to the safety and security of all members of the public.”

The installation of the CCTV project was initiated by Turriff Business Association and funded by Aberdeenshire Council through the Scottish Government’s Town Centre Grant Fund.

Turriff has well over 100 businesses situated in the town of which Turriff Business Association has a membership of approximately 65 businesses who pay an annual subscription to help pay towards this type of project.

CCTV coverage has been an item highlighted by both the local businesses and the community through public consultations via Planning for Real some years ago, and, again in the Turriff Local Action Plan 2019 initiated through Turriff and District Community Council’s Place Standard Conversation consultations.


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 CCTV software (including a revolutionary rapid deployment kit) and automatic number-plate recognition, and even facial recognition access control systems if required.

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.
