New CCTV surveillance cameras to tackle anti-social behaviour in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park

Comments Off on New CCTV surveillance cameras to tackle anti-social behaviour in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park

New CCTV surveillance cameras will be deployed in Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Park in an attempt to tackle anti-social behaviour, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

The cameras will be installed at two locations in the west end park, which has been scene of a number of high-profile incidents of public drinking, anti-social behaviour and littering in recent weeks.

The installation of CCTV cameras comes amid criticism levelled at the council and police for their efforts in attempting to clamp down on the anti-social behaviour witnessed in the park – with council staff urged to get to the “root cause”.

This year some gates will be closed on busy days, while last summer ten of the park’s 16 gates were locked, and those entering the park will be checked for alcohol by police and community enforcement officers.


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.
