Salisbury CCTV system to get a £25,000 upgrade – and mobile cameras

CCTV in Salisbury is getting a £25,000 upgrade – as well as welcoming new additions to the fleet.

The improvements, which will see updates to the control room, are being funded by Salisbury City Council.

“With working and volunteering hours continuing to rise, as well as the expansion of CCTV in the city, the control room system now needs an upgrade and an additional budget of £25,000 has been agreed to do this,” a council spokesperson said.

The installation will take place in May and carried out by contractors Smart Integrated Solutions, they said, with new software enabling operators to “work more effectively and continue to uphold CCTV and data protection regulations”.

As well as the system upgrade, four deployable CCTV cameras will soon be installed in the city following the council’s successful bid to the government’s Safer Street Funding.

The cameras will join the 64 already in place across Salisbury, recording 24 hours a day.

“Salisbury CCTV plays a very important role in keeping the city safe and assists in preventing and detecting crime,” the spokesperson added.

“The control room is monitored by a fantastic team who do a great job in providing vital evidence and intelligence to partners including the Police, ShopWatch, PubWatch and City Centre Security Officers.”

Meanwhile, the CCTV team is keen to hear from people prepared to volunteer as a CCTV operator.
