Warwick District are watching and keeping you safe

The Surveillance Camera Commissioner has commended Warwick District Council (WDC) and their CCTV team for accurately complying with the ‘Surveillance Camera Code of Practice’ under the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.

The scheme operates 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, monitoring the district to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and public disorder, making our streets safer for everyone. 

On top of this, the team also provides an effective emergency response, operating several emergency help points in addition to monitoring the river levels during lousy weather, liaising with the Environment Agency as appropriate.

Councillor Judy Flap, Portfolio Holder for Health & Community Protection, said: “I am so pleased to confirm that the Council has once again been commended for its high standards of CCTV operation, and my thanks go to the team who work round the clock to keep us all safe.

“This past year has been particularly challenging, but they have continued to provide a first-class service, especially recently as businesses have opened up and people have returned to our town centres.

“Our residents can rest easy knowing that we are there 24/7, monitoring the district to keep us all safe.”

In recent months several individuals have been seen requiring assistance, and the team has been able to alert the appropriate authorities, monitoring their welfare until they are attended to. It is clear for everyone to see that the technology has other benefits for the local community, not just preventing crime.
