The contract, which began in April, involves an upgrade of the town centre CCTV network through the innovative integration of latest technologies. CCTV images will be sent wirelessly to a new control centre, co-located with north London neighbour Enfield Council, and new equipment will allow for automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) on routes across the borough. The spending on equipment by Barnet is set to deliver cost savings of around £750k over the next five years.
David Longstaff, Barnet Council Cabinet Member for Community Safety, said: “This is a step change in our CCTV service with a far higher quality of equipment than we have had before. The state-of-the-art equipment to be installed will assist the police in detecting crime and will provide much higher quality evidence to secure convictions.”
