Renewal of CCTV Cameras & Operator Licensing

We're waiting for Rachel Thomas to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council,

Does the council have any plans and if so, dates in which it will be upgrading the current CCTV cameras in Neath Town, Port Talbot and Aberavon?

Will the council be introducing any further CCTV cameras in new areas throughout the borough, and again if so, by when?

Is the current CCTV Control Room and Equipment up to standard and working effectively?

Lastly, is the operators SIA licenced and do they follow any guidelines/policies?

Yours faithfully,

Rachel Thomas
