Public space CCTV
Perth & Kinross Council's Public Space CCTV has been in operational for circa 20 years and is monitored by Police Scotland.
The Councils CCTV system currently consists of 35 cameras, mainly located within the City Centre area, two in North Muirton & one at each of the Park and Rides at Broxden & Scone. The purpose of the system is to: -
- Support community & public safety
- Deter anti-social behaviour
- Deter &/or prevent crime
- Support the Investigation, detection and evidence gathering of crimes
- Traffic Management
The technology is now outdated and becoming more difficult and expensive to maintain. As a result Perth & Kinross Council has secured funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to support the upgrade the current cameras, recording & management systems and improve / future proof the connectivity image data feeds to the monitoring, recording & management systems.
The new system is due to be completed by the end of June 2020.
