14/03/2024 - CCTV maintenance and monitoring

In April 2023 MBC outsourced the maintenance and monitoring service to Harborough District Council (HDC) for our CCTV system. However, HDC are now unable to provide this service and we are having to explore alternative maintenance and monitoring options.

Since April 2023 we have increased our CCTV offer through funding from Safer Melton Partnership (SMP). This funding allowed us to install a permanent camera at Play Close and repurposed the WCCTV by redeploying on Norman Way with a Help point. This took our camera numbers to 11 permanent, 4 WCCTV and 1 Help Point.
In December 2023 we received funding through Safer Streets 5 (SS5) which allowed us to increase our CCTV further with an additional 3 permanent cameras at Beckmill Court and 1 WCCTV camera and 1 Help point at Wilton Terrace.

Enquiries have been made with other local authorities to explore alternative options to ensure best service delivery and value for money. We engaged with several authorities including Leicester City Council, South Kesteven District Council and West Northampton Council.

Please see the considered options for the maintenance and monitoring.

The purpose of the this report is to inform you of all the options available to MBC and the rational of our decision moving forward.
