Leicestershire council to use mobile CCTV to reduce anti-social behaviour

Leicestershire council to use mobile CCTV to reduce anti-social behaviour

The flexibility of new intelligent CCTV systems is to be utilised to help combat anti-social behaviour in Leicestershire.

A remote mobile CCTV camera is being paid for from a community fund in Abbey ward, which includes the Mowmacre Hill and Stocking Farm estates.

Ward councillor Vijay Riyait told the Leicester Post: "We've been getting problems in areas such as Heacham Drive and Abbey Rise, mainly low level incidents of criminal damage and noise nuisance."

He said that although work with police has helped to lower incidents so far, the councillors do not want to be "complacent".

Fellow ward councillor Annette Byrne explained older cameras cannot be everywhere at once, but the new mobile technology can be installed in different areas.

Local resident Doreen Wadd said after the weekends, broken bottles and rubbish is discarded everywhere and the camera may be able to act as a deterrent and improve the situation.
