He said: “The new system of 53 cameras will be implemented and operational by March 2015. The contract value for the seven year duration is likely to reach £2.5M, with options to extend the solution at a future date. The CCTV project is a good example of the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner, Cumbria Constabulary and the six district councils working together in collaboration furthering public safety.”
Chief Constable Jerry Graham said: “I am pleased with how the CCTV project is developing and the signing of the contract is an important step in providing the best CCTV system for Cumbria we can afford. CCTV will help us to keep Cumbria a safe place to live, work and visit. The CCTV system has been designed for future expansion as appropriate and if additional funding becomes available. The new system will provide consistent and improved CCTV coverage across Cumbria. CCTV is an important tool to help solve crime and keep our local communities safe.”
