Comments Off on New high-end CCTV surveillance camera deployed at Newark market place as part of crime-reduction drive

A new high-end CCTV camera has been added as a preventative measure to provide increased coverage of Newark market place in a bid by local authorities and police to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the area, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

Newark and Sherwood District Council has funded the high definition camera, in partnership with the police and town council.

It will act as a deterrent against crime and allow for images clear enough to identify and track offenders.

Councillor David Lloyd, district council leader, said: “We work alongside the police to do everything we can to make our town centres safe places and it is without question that effective surveillance is crucial in crime enforcement.

“The new camera will complement the existing permanent CCTV already in the market place and offer a greater scope to prevent crime and maximise our public safety efforts.

“Crime and anti-social behaviour is down across Newark and Sherwood, including the town centre and we want it to stay this way.

“I hope the new camera will give people confidence in knowing that evidence from the cameras will be readily available and help ensure this downward trend continues.”


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.
