Concerned business owners in Borrowash have called for the local council to install CCTV systems after incidents of anti-social behaviour and a number of burglaries in the village.
At a meeting last night, (May 1st) they asked Hardyal Dhindsa, deputy police and crime commissioner for the county, to back their request to Erewash Borough Council.
Mahmood Wadud, the owner of the Bay of Bengal restaurant, told the Derby Telegraph that CCTV would be a good idea to help protect businesses - especially between the hours of 10:30 pm and midnight.
Mr Dhindsa agreed to examine their concerns and look at the possibility of installing cameras.
He said: "I will speak to the [police] force to look at the possible allocation of more officers in the area at specific times. I will also speak to Erewash Borough Council to see what their plans are in regards to CCTV."
