CCTV Turned Off at Arson Attack – CCTV News
CCTV has become a major part in investigations and crime control in this country, with this in mind we have an increased amount of CCTV news available. Here are a few examples of CCTV news this week:
Industrial estate blaze: CCTV cameras had been switched off. This is a brilliant example as to why you should have security for your businesses. A SUSPECTED arson attack happened near an industrial estate just two months after businesses voted to switch off CCTV cameras. The security system covered eight industrial estates in Bolton and it was scrapped in November. A fairground trailer full of dodgems worth £60,000 was set alight in Mill Street at 6.30pm on Thursday — in view of the non-working cameras.
New £10,000 CCTV camera to fight crime in town’s park. The Carmarthenshire Community Safety Partnership has funded the camera, costing almost £10,000, following a request from the police and the town council. It is hoped it will help in the fight against crime and anti-social behaviour, as well as provide reassurance for residents.
Andrew Farndon Escape! Police hunting for a violent prisoner who went on the run after being sprung from the clutches of two prison guards as they escorted him to hospital have released CCTV images of his armed escape. It is thought the two men may have escaped in a dark-coloured car and other accomplices may be involved.
