Police asks for deployment of CCTV system at Glasgow Necropolis

Comments Off on Police asks for deployment of CCTV system at Glasgow Necropolis

A senior police figure with Police Scotland has called for the deployment of CCTV cameras at the Glasgow Necropolist, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.

The Glasgow Necropolis is a historic cemetery and tourist attraction, the 37-acre Victorian cemetery, east of the city centre, containing about 3,500 monuments and sculptures. As such, it is in serious danger of being affected by antisocial behaviour.

Glasgow City Council said the implementation of cameras had been explored but the topography of the site made it difficult.

A spokesman for Glasgow City Council said: “Community Safety Glasgow currently deploy two daily security patrols, staggered day and night, to the Necropolis and random mobile CCTV patrols are also conducted in the area to deter and detect antisocial behaviour. Foot patrols are also carried out within the Necropolis to deter dog fouling.

“There are also quarterly meetings between Police Scotland, the council, Community Safety Glasgow and the Friends of the Necropolis group to discuss any issues.

“The possibility of using re-deployable CCTV in the Necropolis was also explored, but the topography of the site made it difficult in terms of radio signalling.”

CCTV Surveillance offers a wide range of digital cameras available in various types and sizes (from Digital CCTV Bullet Cameras to Infra-red CCTV Cameras), but also quite an extensive range of DVRs. It’s important to point out that all of the DVRs supplied by CCTV Surveillance support long-term, continuous high quality digital CCTV recording, being able to securely store footage for several CCTV cameras found on the network.

Additionally, the company’s CCTV systems are designed to fully integrate with computer systems running CCTV Surveillance’s dedicated CCTV software, which makes it easier to integrate and control a large number of cameras from a single location.
