Lincoln retains CCTV despite budget cuts

Lincoln retains CCTV despite budget cuts

CCTV has been deemed too important to cut in recent council budget changes in Lincoln.
 
The area's CCTV systems will still be monitored 24 hours a day, despite changes to the staffing numbers at the City of Lincoln Council.
 
Steve Bird, assistant director of communities and street scene at the council, told the Lincolnshire Echo: "This proposal will deliver significant savings, but still maintain a high quality CCTV service."
 
The plan is to have at least one person monitoring the CCTV at all times, with additional help being drafted in during busier periods.
 
If the proposal gains approval it is thought that it could save the local authority around £321,310 over the next five years.
 
Recent technological advances in video surveillance have meant that it is much easier to monitor CCTV systems effectively than it has been in the past.  
 
Intelligent solutions can be programmed to the needs of the end-user and IP technology makes it simple to store footage.
