Better community safety with iC2 CCTV solutions
Police numbers down by over 20,000 and crime up 14%
For many local authorities, community safety and environmental issues continue to dominate the agenda and soak up resources. The Crime Survey for England and Wales takes pains to focus on the perceptions of the levels of ASB.
The survey seeks to reveal the scale of a range of problems, including:
- People using or dealing drugs
- Rubbish or litter lying around
- Teenagers hanging around on the streets
- Vandalism, graffiti and other deliberate damage to property
Whatever the root causes, the age of austerity has progressively reduced the resources of LAs and hollowed out the police service. We are at a point where those that participate in crime and ASB feel emboldened.
Police numbers might be down by over 20,000 and crime may be up 14%. However, iC2 community safety solutions help local authorities do a better job of creating safer communities and promoting a better quality of life.
Rapid Deployment Cameras
Rapid Deployment Cameras (RDCs) are configurable at build to meet a range of community safety requirements. The RDC was designed to overcome the systemic time lag that slows the camera commissioning process, such as budget planning and building the business case. Once in your inventory, local authorities have instant access to flexible camera resources that can be deployed or moved at short notice to wherever ASB or other community safety issues rear their head.
CCTV and lighting arrays
Custom built CCTV and lighting arrays based on the robust RDC design are intended for permanent fixed installation. They are highly suited to protecting sites that may have previously proved impossible to protect because of the difficultly in accessing power and network services. These are bespoke and technically elegant solutions that enable the limitations of connectivity to be overcome. Learn more in the Bolton Case Study.
