The CCTV system in Market Harborough town centre is now back up and running, it was today confirmed.
The 17-camera network has had problems since September last year when the control room had to be relocated, leaving parts of the town uncovered while cabling was rerouted.
But Harborough Distruct Council leader Blake Pain said today (Monday): “There had been a wait for third party contractors to relocate the cabling within Market Harborough. However this work was completed last week allowing the CCTV system to be reconfigured and tested.
“We are pleased to confirm that it is now operational across the Harborough district.
“Throughout the relocation period, the CCTV system continued to support community safety across parts of the district, including Lutterworth town centre, and other services which are linked to CCTV have continued to operate as normal.”
The new CCTV control centre is in the town’s police station on Fairfield Road, but will not operated by the police.
Cllr Pain added: “Harborough District Council continues to work tirelessly with partners, including the police, through the Harborough District Community Safety Partnership to maintain low levels of crime and ensure the district remains one of the safest places in the East Midlands.”
