The CCTV network in Salisbury is to benefit from a system upgrade due £25k in additional funding from Salisbury City Council.

The control room system is in need of an upgrade as a result of working and volunteering hours on the rise, as well as the expansion of the CCTV system in the city.

The installation will take place in May, carried out by contractors Smart Integrated Solutions. The new software will enable the operators to work more effectively and continue to uphold CCTV and data protection regulations.

In addition to a system upgrade, four deployable CCTV cameras will soon be installed in the city following the city council’s successful bid to the government’s Safer Street Funding. The cameras will join the 64 cameras that are already recording 24/7 across the city.

The control room is monitored by a team who work to provide vital evidence and intelligence to partners such as the police, ShopWatch, PubWatch and City Centre Security Officers.
