Council funds CCTV 'after hearing about advantages'

A town council has agreed to fund the installation of CCTV systems after hearing about their value to members of the local community.

Martin Dales, chairman of Ryedale Cameras in Action, told Norton Town Council about the uses of the security systems and the local authority agreed to contribute £3,000 towards CCTV surveillance in the town, reports The Press.

He said: "The equipment is relatively straightforward and the volunteers are there. However, the exact location [for the monitoring station] in Ryedale House has yet to be finalised."

Mr Dales explained that CCTV is a huge advantage to both Norton and Malton and had a number of uses that are not just associated with traditional crime.

With the recent bad weather, the cameras have been employed in monitoring the flooding issues and they can also be used to check for truancy and anti-social parking in the towns, he added.
