STRATFORD is set to undergo a £800,000 CCTV upgrade.

The district council is set to invest money in upgrading the control room, CCTV operating system and replacing all 87 cameras for digital cameras. All lines will also be upgraded to transmit digital images to the control room and six new cameras will be installed.

The CCTV – which operates 24 hours a day across the district – can be directly transmitted to Warwickshire Police.

Council community spokeswoman Sarah Whalley-Hoggins said: “The upgrade of our district-wide CCTV system will play a key role in preventing and detecting crime and disorder and keeping people safe in our town centres.

“People need to feel safe and comfortable to shop and enjoy their leisure time and to go about their daily lives. We know from speaking to our residents that CCTV is highly valued because of the integral part it has in preventing and detecting crime and disorder.

“The upgrade now reflects the high calibre personnel that work tirelessly to keep the streets of Stratford safe.”

And Warwickshire Police say the upgrades will improve safety across the district.

Supt Daf Goddard: “The use of CCTV is integral for police and partners, in order to prevent and deter crime, and for its use in investigating offences.

“We’re really pleased to see this upgrade of CCTV within the Stratford district, and hope it will continue to help keep the district a safe place to live, work and visit.”
