Herefordshire Council is delighted to have been successful in bidding for funding to continue its CCTV service across the county.
The funding has been awarded by the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner Bill Longmore, after the council submitted an application in October. The council will receive £84,000 in each of the next three financial years.
Additional funding of £20,000 has also been secured for the current financial year.
Shane Hancock, Herefordshire Council’s service manager parking and CCTV, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded such a substantial amount of funding from the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner. This will allow the council to not only secure a new three year monitoring contract, but also to continue real time proactive monitoring of our 40 cameras across the county.
“It is a clear indication that the commissioner values the CCTV service provided for residents and partner organisations, such as West Mercia Police.”
