MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT TONY COLMAN
visited the new CCTV centre this week - and very impressive
it is. Home Office funding has now paid for much of the new
network which deters crime, vandalism and offensive behaviour.
Less crime and less fear means we are more likely to use our
local shops, more likely to walk to them, which in turns encourages
vibrant local communities that are a pleasure to be in.
CCTV also helps all authorities work together - police, the
council, traffic and transport managers and emergency services.
The Control Centre can advise police on accidents and problems
as they arise, and help the Council by watching red routes
and parking problems spots.

in the Wandsworth
also reduces the fear of crime,
which is incredibly important.
The network of CCTV that has
been set up around Wandsworth
in the last 5 years now covers
many town centres, estates,
subways, public transport nodes
and main roads. It will take
some time for us, the public,
to realise and remember that
it is there, but I do believe
fear of crime will diminish
as CCTV is used to catch more
criminals and stop more street
brings me on to the news that
street crime has fallen dramatically
this year already, following
operation Safer Streets' launch.
Whilst we have to wait to see
if the downward trend continues,
this is a very welcome start.
we must remember that we do
live in one of the safer Boroughs,
even if statistics are cold
comfort to victims of crime.
