New CCTV camera systems to be deployed at Wigan borough fly-tipping hotspots

Comments Off on New CCTV camera systems to be deployed at Wigan borough fly-tipping hotspots


A new CCTV camera system will be deployed at Wigan borough fly-tipping hotspots as part of a plan to crackdown on fly-tippers, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The cameras have the ability to tilt and pan wider areas with footage monitored by staff in the council’s central watch CCTV room. The council estimates that more than £4m is spent taking litter off streets, parks and greenspaces every year – and this includes £700,000 on fly-tipping alone.

Coun Paul Prescott, the council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “There is absolutely no excuse for fly tipping, it is a nuisance to our communities and costs money to clear away.

“That is why we will take any steps necessary to find and prosecute offenders.

“We are determined to crackdown on the problem and installing CCTV at fly-tipping hotspots will hopefully act as a further deterrent and successful prosecutions should people choose to flout the law.”

CCTV SURVEILLANCE – TOP UK SUPPLIER AND INSTALLATION CONTRACTOR OF DIGITAL CCTV SYSTEMS

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 enquiries@cctv-surveillance.co.uk or ring 01480 223955.
