COUNCIL bosses have shelled out £7 million for a new CCTV network of 240 cameras.

Bexley council signed the deal with Siemens and Wilson James to design, build, operate and manage a comprehensive CCTV system for the borough, last Thursday. A new control room, in the council's offices, is scheduled to open next Spring. Under the new system, CCTV operators will be able to identify incidents and co-ordinate appropriate responses from a range of public sector organisations, including the police, fire and ambulance services. Radio links between staff in pubs and shops, police and camera operators will be used.
