York to be protected by new CCTV systems

York to be protected by new CCTV systems

A new CCTV systems centre in York has been opened.
 
The £300,000 camera suite at the city council's offices will provide 24-hour coverage of about 120 cameras in the area and local councillor Linsay Cunningham-Cross said the service would "keep our city safe".
 
It has been equipped with a traffic management service, a 24-hour CCTV control room and internal facilities in which the police can review footage they need for their investigations.
 
Ms Cunningham-Cross, Labour cabinet member for crime and stronger communities in York, said: "The new state-of-the-art technology will help to widen our CCTV services to cover even more of the city, keeping residents safe."
 
Funding for the site has come from the Department for Transport and the City of York Council, while ongoing costs will be paid for by the government's Local Transport Plan and the Better Bus Area Fund.
 
It will replace old CCTV and traffic monitoring sites in the city.
