CCTV is one of the tools used in the fight against crime and to reduce the fear of crime. It is especially helpful in tackling property crime such as burglary, robbery and car theft and anti-social behaviour. Vulnerable missing persons, too, are sometimes located in this way.
A successful CCTV system has been operating in Cirencester town centre for some time – covering streets and car parks - and is managed in collaboration with Cirencester Town Council and the Police. Plans are in place to update the equipment to enhance the images and to make part of the system portable.
