The following is a very welcome Council press release dated 17th September:
As part of Spelthorne Borough Council’s continued drive to improve community safety, a new, modern CCTV camera has been installed at Orchard Meadow car park in Sunbury.
The camera will be monitored 24/7 along with cameras in Staines-upon-Thames town centre and elsewhere in the Borough.
The installation was arranged in response to concerns regarding anti-social behaviour in the area. The Council will continue to listen to residents’ concerns and, where necessary, take action to help combat anti-social behaviour. We are also taking feedback from our Community Safety consultation earlier this year in order to formulate a strategy for the future.
Cllr Richard Barratt, Portfolio Holder for Community Safety, said: “We want to reassure residents that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated in Spelthorne. We hope that installing this modern CCTV camera will act as a deterrent as footage will be used to identify any perpetrators. All of us have a responsibility to deal with anti-social behaviour and to help people who are suffering because it. If you have any concerns about anti-social behaviour, contact your community safety team or call the non-emergency number, 101.”
If you wish to report fly tipping, graffiti, anti-social behaviour, noise pollution or dog fouling, please contact the Council direct.
If you have concerns about other forms of crime, please call police on 101. In an emergency, always dial 999.
