How CCTV is used

1. Overview

The closed circuit television (CCTV) in Stockport is monitored by our control room and is an essential tool. It helps us to:

  • protect areas used by the public
  • deter and detect crime
  • assist in the identification of offenders, leading to their arrest and successful prosecution
  • reduce anti-social behaviour
  • reduce the fear of crime
  • encourage better use of facilities and attractions
  • maintain and enhance the commercial viability of the town and encourage continued investment
