CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) is a valuable tool in the prevention and detection of crime. We do not have a permanent CCTV system operating in the towns within the District. We do have access to Deployable CCTV, which is funded by the Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP). This type of 'mobile' system can be deployed quickly to any area which is experiencing high levels of crime and disorder.
Deployment of mobile CCTV
The deployment of the CCTV is co-ordinated by the police and relevant CDRP task groups. The monitoring of the CCTV is undertaken by the police. The release of information from CCTV is controlled by the Local Deputy Inspector for more information see release procedure for CCTV.
Reporting crime and antisocial behaviour
If you have concerns about increased levels of crime or anti social behaviour in your area, please see the information on reporting crime and antisocial behaviour.
For non-emergency incidents and issues you can contact Cumbria Police telephone number 101.
