CCTV proves its worth - 15 May 2017

Taunton Deane CCTV operators have again demonstrated the value of their work in apprehending three suspected burglars of a jewellery shop in Fore Street, Taunton, on Friday 12 May 2017.

Without their work, a high value theft would have occurred and potentially the would-be thieves would have escaped justice. As a result of their diligence and the prompt response from the Police, these three have been taken off the streets.

A spokesman for Taunton Deane Borough Council said: “This once again shows the skill of our CCTV operators and the value of genuine partnership working between CCTV and the Police, as well as with Sedgemoor District Council. As a council, we commend them all for work and swift response in bringing this matter swiftly to justice.”

Editor’s Notes: Taunton Deane CCTV operation is outsourced to Sedgemoor District Council who monitor and maintain the system through a contractual arrangement. Real time pictures are monitored 24/7/365 across Taunton and Wellington town centres.
