Dyfed-Powys Police looks at mobile CCTV for trouble spots

Mobile CCTV cameras could be used in favour of fixed surveillance cameras in a bid to quickly crack down on anti-social behaviour.

The portable cameras would also be able to relay footage from trouble spots back to police stations via wi-fi.

Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner Christopher Salmon is looking at the plans as part of a £33,000 review.

The final proposals are due to be published in the autumn.

"There is an idea of placing the cameras in areas when needed, and they then can be moved quickly as those needs change," he said.

"I want to offer a solution for CCTV across our region as it can, as part of a wider strategy, play a role in keeping communities safe."

Mr Salmon is looking at a more coordinated approach, involving councils and other public bodies who have their own CCTV systems.

The final proposals are due to be published in the autumn.
