Our CCTV service supported 152 arrests last year

Our joint CCTV service responded to 1,110 incidents across Chatteris, March, Whittlesey and Wisbech last year, a Council update said.


Incidents included those relating to anti-social behaviour, criminal damage, violent crime, illegal drug use, possession of weapons and theft.

CCTV intervention led to 152 arrests being made by Cambridgeshire Police, the report to Fenland's full council, which meets on Monday (May 20), said.

The CCTV service, a shared service with Peterborough City Council, maintained its 100 per cent 24/7 service from end April 2023 to beginning April 2024, the report adds.

The CCTV service also continues to be pro-active in delivering services that help reduce crime & disorder and anti-social behaviour by delivering regular camera patrols of Chatteris, March, Whittlesey, Wisbech and other key locations.

In addition to the responsive work, the CCTV team has delivered 4,380 patrols during 2023/24.

The report says: "All patrols are conducted across the 24/7 period ensuring that no matter what time of day and night our local communities are being protected and that any issues or concerns are being identified as early as possible.

"The CCTV service also provides the council's 'out of hours' telephone contact services, for example, homelessness, stray and lost dogs, cleansing incidents, dangerous buildings and structures, damaged trees, to name but a few areas.

"During 2023/24 the CCTV service has responded to over 388 calls for services from our telephone contact service."

Fenland District Council works constantly to improve all the services it delivers.
