Closed circuit television (CCTV) plays a crucial role in preventing and detecting crime in public places across the district.

The objectives of the system are:

  • To help in the prevention of crime
  • To help reduce the fear of crime and;
  • To facilitate the apprehension and prosecution of offenders in relation to crime and public order.

We currently operate 18 cameras positioned in various locations around each of the 3 towns. We have a Service Level Agreement in place with Bromsgrove District Council regarding the monitoring of the cameras. The cameras are controlled and monitored from Bromsgrove and Redditch Council’s CCTV monitoring station based in Redditch. All our cameras are clearly visible and there are signs in the locality advising of their existence.

Only the Police and insurance companies with a crime reference number will be permitted to view footage, they should contact the Monitoring Centre on
