CCTV Consultation

What do we want to know?: 

Southend-on-Sea Borough Council is consulting on improvements to the CCTV system across the Borough. There are currently 165 cameras used to help protect the public from crime and antisocial behaviour (ASB) across Southend and the Council has a legal duty to make sure they are effective.

The CCTV suite is monitored 365 days a year, 24 hours a day with cameras that are strategically placed around the Borough to reduce fear and crime. We have recently carried out a review of the effectiveness of our CCTV cameras, and whilst the vast majority are effective, a significant number may no longer be performing a useful role in tackling crime and ASB.


In order to justify the legal need to keep these cameras, we are consulting with local people, businesses, and other groups to ask their views on the effectiveness of the cameras.

Drop in sessions are being arranged in Southend, Leigh and Shoebury areas and further information on where and when will be published here.
