Hi-tech CCTV returns to Monmouth

Hi-tech CCTV returns to Monmouth

More than four years after Monmouth was left without a CCTV system, new surveillance devices will be installed across the town.

Following a long campaign by both local businesses and traders, Monmouth Town Council has rejoined Abergavenny, Caldicot and Chepstow in the local CCTV partnership, reports the South Wales Argus.

Six new state of the art cameras will be used. They will be connected wirelessly, which means the CCTV can be moved to new crime hotspots quickly and effectively if required - without the need to wait for underground cables to be installed.

"This is about making Monmouth a safer place to live, work and visit. It's about making people feel more confident and safe, reducing crime and making people think twice about committing crimes or anti-social behaviour," said Andy Mason, Monmouthshire council's CCTV project officer.

The wireless signal will be sent to Monmouth Comprehensive School and then on to the council's network to the SRS control room in Blaenavon.
