New CCTV System

New CCTV System

Dursley Town Council is pleased to announce that a new CCTV system is now up and running in the town centre to help combat crime and anti-social behaviour.

The new system, commissioned by the Town Council, provides quality, high definition images and is in addition to the existing Stroud CCTV system that has been operating in the town for many years.

The position of the 12 new cameras has been agreed following consultation with the local Police team and security consultants, Redhand, and provides wider coverage of the town centre. More »

The system also provides coverage of the War Memorial Recreation Ground and will include the new Long Street Car Park when it opens later this year.

The Mayor of Dursley Councillor Grecian said "CCTV is something that the Council has been considering for some time. We hope that the new Town Council system will provide the Police with greater assistance and wider coverage of the town centre which sadly has often been the focus for anti-social behaviour and acts of vandalism".

Speaking on behalf of Dursley Business Inclusive, Suzi Abraham, Chair of the group, said "we are delighted with the installation of the new CCTV system and are more confident that our businesses are now protected should there be any further anti-social behaviour in the town centre. We would like to thank Dursley Town Council for the system".

For further details about the management, operation and use of the new CCTV system please see a copy of the Council's CCTV Policy and Code of Practice, available online at www.dursleytowncouncil.gov.uk or from the Council Office, Jacob's House, Castle Street, Dursley.
