Montrose Ave/Close Watch Camera Scheme hits 45 in second week

Montrose Ave/Close Watch residents are again being praised for getting behind an innovative new scheme that aims to help residents and their local police prevent crime but also help detect crime more efficiently. In the first week of a new CCTV registration scheme over 20 Montrose Ave/Close Watch residents who have CCTV have signed up.

The CCTV register works by using online registration which enables Montrose Ave/Close Watch to review where any CCTV is situated in relation to the location of an incident.

“The CCTV register saves our police service hours and hours of trying to look and find out where any CCTV is located. The more residents that join the CCTV register the more we can help save hours of police time locating CCTV.”

All residents data is secure, meets GDPR regulations and there is no direct access to residents CCTV involved.

“We are really pleased that in a fortnight we already have 45 residents who have signed up to the register. What we’d like is to get all CCTV signed up so we can provide the best possible service to support our police teams and also send out a message to criminals that coming to Montrose Ave/Close Watch is a bad idea because we are a united as a community when it comes to preventing and detecting crime. We’d encourage anyone that has CCTV and who has only just heard of the scheme or who has yet to register to do so now,” a Montrose Ave/Close Watch residents coordinator added.
