Ashford and Tenterden public space cameras are to be updated and will soon provide even greater confidence in community safety.


The new cameras will generate high-resolution digital images that will be relayed to our monitoring centre via the Kent Public Service Network (KPSN). This project represents a major investment in our town centres.

The public space CCTV systems play a vital part in keeping town centres safe and making them a welcoming place to visit.

 

They provide important evidence to the police and other enforcement agencies both preventing and detecting crime.

The new system will be more energy efficient and less expensive to run. Its enhanced functionality is expected to attract new business for the council.

Details are currently being finalised but the hope is to have both Ashford and Tenterden operational by the end of March 2019.

Cllr Brad Bradford, portfolio holder for Community Safety and Wellbeing at Ashford Borough Council, said: “Switching to the KPSN network will not only secure an up-to-date platform for the operation of CCTV within our borough, it will also reduce ongoing connection costs and enable the Monitoring Centre to expand its offering to over 6,000 other sites in Kent currently on the system.”
