Work is almost complete on the installation of new CCTV cameras in the last three towns in Pembrokeshire.

Ten cameras will have been fitted in total - four in Pembroke, four in Pembroke Dock and two in Fishguard.

The camera locations have been decided following a review of a crime pattern analysis and in consultation with partner agencies.

They mark completion of the CCTV project in Pembrokeshire.

The work has been carried out by contractors Baydale Control Systems Ltd as part of the reinvestment in CCTV programme being driven by a key pledge from the Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner.

Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn said: “The completion of CCTV installation in Pembrokeshire marks a significant step in this complex project.”

“I am delighted to see my pledge to the public coming to fruition and hope communities will feel the benefits of having the new and improved technology helping to safeguard their towns.”

Over 120 cameras are being installed in 17 towns throughout the police force area of Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Powys.

The work started in Builth Wells in July 2018 and is progressing well.  

A modern CCTV Monitoring Room is also being introduced in the Force Communication Centre at Police Headquarters, Llangunnor, which will allow cameras to be monitored centrally by dedicated staff.  

Further information about the camera locations is available on the Dyfed-Powys Police website.
