New CCTV surveillance hub in Dundee to be more proactive, clamp down on anti-social behaviour
A new CCTV surveillance hub being currently set up in Dundee will help improve the resident’s safety and possibly reduce the level of damage to the council’s property, local authorities hope.
Work is currently under way at the new £750,000 Safety and Alarm Centre, set to open at the West Housing Office at Sinclair Street, which has been described as more “proactive than anything that has gone before”.
It will bring footage from property-related council CCTV cameras — of which there are about 1,000 — under one roof.
The cameras will be monitored by staff at all times in an effort to stop antisocial behaviour and clamp down on vandals targeting council buildings.
Operators will be able to talk directly to culprits through speakers in a bid to make them to stop — while mobile responders will be able to take action.
Staff will monitor cameras across council properties in Dundee, including the 11 multi-storey blocks and the vehicle depot at Marchbanks, which has been the scene of a number of incidents of vandalism over the last year which had cost the council “vital funds”.
