In mid-Wales, ten CCTV cameras are being installed in Aberystwyth by the contractor, Baydale Control Systems Ltd. It’s the latest work as 120 cameras are being installed in 17 towns across the Dyfed-Powys Police area of Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Powys. Police point to the Police and Crime Commissioner’s election pledge to reinstate public-space CCTV across the force area.
Since July 2018 the new cameras have been installed in Builth Wells, Carmarthen, Llanelli, Ammanford, Saundersfoot, Tenby, Milford Haven and Haverfordwest. For maps of camera locations visit the Dyfed-Powys website. Cameras are due shortly in Newtown, Welshpool, Cardigan, Llandrindod Wells, Fishguard, Pembroke and Pembroke Dock.
Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn said: “Aberystwyth is a busy town within the Dyfed-Powys Police force area where CCTV is required to safeguard communities and assist in investigations. Crime mapping analysis has identified ten locations for cameras for the town and I am delighted that work is to begin there very soon.”
A CCTV monitoring room is being fitted in the Force Communication Centre at police headquarters, at Llangunnor, outside Carmarthen.
Project Manager Marie McAvoy said: “I am grateful to the team I work with for their continued determination to ensure this project is delivered for the benefit of the communities we serve. I am also grateful to Ceredigion County Council and North and Mid Wales Trunk Road Agency for their assistance and support in ensuring that this re-investment in CCTV in Aberystwyth is delivered.”
