Perth City Public Space CCTV

Closes 15 Nov 2019

Opened 4 Oct 2019

Overview

Perth & Kinross Council’s CCTV is now outdated and becoming more difficult and expensive to maintain. As a result Perth & Kinross Council has secured funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). These funds will be used to:

  • support the upgrade of current cameras;
  • support the upgrade of recording & management systems;
  • improve/futureproof the connectivity of image data feeds to monitoring, recording & management systems.

Background

Perth & Kinross Council’s CCTV has been in operation for around 20 years and is monitored by Police Scotland. The Council's CCTV system currently consists of 35 cameras, mainly located within the City Centre area with two cameras in North Muirton and one at each of the Park and Ride sites at Broxden & Scone. The purpose of the system is to:

  • support community & public safety;
  • deter anti-social behaviour;
  • deter &/or prevent crime;
  • support the investigation, detection and evidence gathering of crimes;
  • contribute to traffic management.

Why We Are Consulting

Perth & Kinross Council has identified a small number of locations in Perth City that will require camera relocation. The Council has also secured funding from other agencies to install additional cameras. These cameras will support community and public safety as well as assisting work being undertaken on greener alternative routes into the City Centre.

Therefore, we invite members of the public, organisations and businesses to complete a short survey on Perth & Kinross Council's CCTV.
