CCTV used to plug crime gap

CCTV used to plug crime gap

A new CCTV camera is to be installed in Lisburn in the hoping of filling a gap in the area's security network.

The weakness was identified by crime pattern analysis and now Lisburn City Centre Management hopes that by adding this to an existing CCTV system of 33 devices criminals will be under surveillance right throughout the Lisburn, Hillsborough, Dunmurry and Moira region, reports the Ulster Star.

"The installation of this latest camera will enhance the capabilities of the existing CityWatch crime prevention scheme, further helping to prevent and detect criminal activity in the city centre and villages," said Alderman Jim Dillon, chairman of the council's Economic Development Committee.

Chairman of Lisburn Commerce Against Crime Ernie Knox added that the CCTV forms part of an integrated security system that also allows businesses to communicate with each other and the police via the use of a dedicated radio link band wave.
