Warminster Town Council has announced that it has been agreed to replace the existing CCTV cameras in the town centre.
The CCTV in Warminster Town Centre will be updated.
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."
