Mobile CCTV to clamp down on crime

Created on 02/08/2022 @ 09:48

Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn has secured funding of almost £300,000 that will deliver a series of initiatives to make our streets safer. 

The Welshpool area is set to benefit from the force’s purchase of 14 CCTV rapid deployment units that can tackle Anto-Social Behavior in hot spots that are not covered by fiull time cameras.

Mr Llywelyn said the money will also be used to invest in initiatives that also address “acquisitive crime in specific areas and address women’s safety”.

The total amount of funding is £292,741, and will also include the force’s backing of the Hollie Guard Extra app designed to protect young women and girls.

“I am extremely pleased to announce that we have been successful in securing this latest safer streets funding from the Home Office,” said Mr Llywelyn. 

“We have worked closely with our partners to identify certain initiatives that will aim to ensure that our communities and streets are safe environments for residents.

“Over the last two years we have received almost £800,000 from the Home Office’s Safer Street Fund, which highlights our commitment to making streets safer for those in local communities, and to reducing crime and anti-social behaviour related issues, including violence against women and girls.

“Preventing harm to individuals and communities caused through crime, anti-social behaviour and vulnerability is one of my three key priorities, and the safer streets funding supports us significantly to work collaboratively with partners to address these issues.”
