Council installs CCTV after car park theft

Council installs CCTV after car park theft

Councillors are looking to use the deterrent powers of CCTV systems to protect residents outside a community centre after a woman was robbed.

Feering Parish Council decided that they need to boost the security presence in the centre's car park after the incident on 9:45 pm on October 15th, the Braintree and Witham Times reports.

Paul Petto, chairman of Feering Parish Council, said: "We were extremely concerned after a woman was robbed in the car park.

"We wanted to act quickly to have CCTV and lighting installed and so paid for the security out of the parish reserves."

Essex Police states that a premise is less likely to be a location of crime if it is has a clearly visible intruder alarm and CCTV will also make criminals think twice about committing any wrongdoings.

The constabulary adds that camera systems must also be registered and comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.
