That means building the homes we need to rent and buy, keeping our communities safe, giving our schools the funding they need,
and restoring the NHS to its place as the envy of the world."
A Labour controlled Councils delivering on its promise to increase the number of CCTV cameras NOT reduce them like the Tories
Switch on for additional CCTV cameras in Amber ValleyFour new state-of-the-art CCTV cameras are now operating in Amber Valley to assist police in their mission to reduce and deter crime in the towns of Alfreton, Belper, Heanor and Ripley.
Like the existing cameras, which were upgraded recently, the new cameras have powerful zoom-in features, meaning they can cover a remarkably wide area. They deliver high-resolution images to a control room which is monitored 24/7. There is one new camera in each town as part of this first phase.
The cameras are also re-deployable, meaning their location can be moved dependent on changes in infrastructure and crime hotspots.
Commented Amber Valley Borough Council’s portfolio holder for regeneration and community safety, Councillor Ben Bellamy: "This increase in CCTV cameras has been carried out as a direct result of feedback we have received from the borough’s residents, and has been delivered as promised. Anyone who thinks about committing crime or anti-social behaviour in our borough should think again. In phase two, we will be looking at extending the CCTV network in partnership with parish councils, to provide more peace of mind to residents in all communities and additional support to the police in prosecuting criminal acts."
