We have invested in new CCTV cameras for Borehamwood as part of its Safer Street Initiative.
Five cameras have been installed in Townsend Road, Aycliffe/Baldock Road, Torworth Road, Leeming Road and Gateshead Road to help reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the area.
In addition, the council has invested in four new mobile cameras to be used at hot spot locations across the borough.
The cameras are part of a series of measures by the council to tackle crime and antisocial behaviour, investigate and detect crime and to help provide a safe and secure environment for residents.
Councillor Pervez Choudhury, Portfolio Holder for Community Safety, said: “We have listened to residents’ concerns and installed the new CCTV system to help reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in this area of Borehamwood.
“New measures such as this will help make life better for people living in the area, as not only will it reduce crime but it will also reduce the fear of it. This is just one of the many improvements we are working on as part of our Safer Streets project and we will continue to work hard through our Community Safety Partnership to identify and introduce measures that will help make Hertsmere a safer place to live, work and enjoy.
“We want to ensure families can feel safe when out. One of the council’s main priorities is to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour, as well as help strengthen our communities and these cameras will make a big contribution to that.
“The new CCTV roll-out will provide a visible deterrent to those who commit crime and will help people feel safe in their communities.”
The CCTV cameras will be controlled and monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week by the Hertfordshire CCTV Partnership.
