Students are concerned about their safety following Ceredigion CCTV shut down
Comments Off on Students are concerned about their safety following Ceredigion CCTV shut down
Students union in Aberystwyth have expressed their concerns regarding their personal safety following the disconnection of Ceredigion’s network of 23 CCTV cameras, a news report in the local media could reveal.
The County Council decided to cut funding for the CCTV system, and since the local councils were not eager to step up and take ownership of the system, it was effectively disconnected. Luckily, it’s just a temporary measure, with the cameras being simply covered and switched off, rather than dismantled altogether.
A Ceredigion County Council spokesman said: “CCTV cameras are being disconnected from the electricity supply and covered. This is to ensure the safety of the equipment and to avoid unnecessary costs, while the system is not in operation.”
Aberystwyth Students’ Union is calling for CCTV coverage to be retained for the safety of students and the rest of the community and expressed their disappointment that authorities were not prepared to take responsibility for the CCTV system.
