York opens new £300k CCTV control centre
York has this weekend welcomed its new £300,000 CCTV control centre.
The expensive camera suite will now be the monitoring hub for around 120 cameras in the city. The suite is located at the city’s council offices on Station Road and provides 24 hour, around the clock, surveillance.
The suite has been part funded by the Department for Transport and now provides a traffic management service, a 24-hour CCTV control room and facilities for the police to review footage.
The centre is expected to cost around £200,000 a year to run but has been given funding by the government’s Local Transport Plan and has also received £30,000 from the Better Bus Area Fund capital allocations.
Councillors believe the centre is well worth the investment as it will help to keep the city, and its people, safe.
Councillor Linsay Cunningham-Cross 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 and protecting our communities from crime”.
