Warminster Town Council has announced that it has been agreed to replace the existing CCTV cameras in the town centre. 

Warminster Council's Finance and Assets Committee have decided to update the security cameras with more advanced technology. 

TV monitors in the control room will be replaced by flat screen LED monitors and the Mark Mercer Dome CCTV cameras will be replaced.

The council found that keeping up the maintenance of the old cameras went from £7,500 a year to £20,400 due to the equipment 'becoming obsolete'. 

It was found that installing a new system will keep the costs down to around £4,500 including saving electricity.

Councillor Nicklin said: "The Council is pleased to support the continuance of a modern CCTV system in the town."

    Any older type CCTV system will cost money to maintain, especially at the rate at which technology on these systems is moving in the current climate.

    Thankfully Warminster Control room has an outstanding team of dedicated CCTV Control Room staff who give up their own time to carry out this vital function.

    I think all towns could do with a CCTV upgrade these days. It is sad that it is needed but new technology would make it so much easier to identify anyone who is causing a disturbance in the area.

    Sadly needed, but needed all the same.
