Shopping centre announces installation of new state-of-the-art surveillance cameras to help improve customer experience
A high definition CCTV system is to be installed in a Bexleyheath shopping centre.
State-of-the-art cameras will be fitted outside Broadway Shopping Centre and the new system will provide higher quality images to support identification of incidents and support prosecutions.
The centre’s customer support team, who’s uniforms will also be fitted with a front facing camera so that members of the public can see themselves, welcome the announcement and are confident the new equipment will only help them do their job better.
Rai Holdstock, centre manager, said: “I am sure visitors and businesses will be thrilled with the news as CCTV plays an important role in helping to prevent crime, anti-social behaviour, prosecute offenders and helps keep people safe.
“The centre is delighted to be working closely with the police and the Business Improvement District on creating a fit for purpose CCTV system, which will benefit the local community.”
The cameras will record footage 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and all CCTV operators will undergo training and vetting to use the CCTV cameras and keep people safe.
Mr Holdstock says the new system will also offer better information to police in the town.
He added: “This new technology complements our existing partnership arrangements with the local authorities to work together to enhance the visitor experience in Bexleyheath town centre and ensure people keep coming back.”
Delivery of the cameras is expected later this month.
