Council to continue funding CCTV cameras

CCTV cameras in Henley are likely to continue to be part-funded by the town council.

The council has set aside £15,000 in next year’s budget towards the cost of the 20 machines in the town centre and £8,000 to operate its own three cameras in Mill Meadows.

It comes as Thames Valley Police bids to reduce its share of the costs of CCTV.

A report presented to the council’s town and community committee showed there were 190 incidents monitored by CCTV in Henley from April to June.

Ten arrests were made as a result of the CCTV cameras. In one incident, a police community support officer contacted the CCTV duty operator with a description of a man who had been very abusive to her when she approached him about his motorbike.
