Ring Doorbells & CCTV Sign Up >50

We are pleased to report that in just over a week already 35 Kenilworth residents have joined Kenilworth’s new CCTV register that’s designed to help police quickly identify where any CCTV is situated should they need to investigate an incident.

The register, which does NOT involve any live access to householders private CCTV, also covers ‘RING” doorbells as these devices also provide very effective CCTV. Kenilworth Watch, who launched the CCTV Register scheme after seeing a successful scheme in nearby Finham, Coventry, are appealing to people who might not have yet registered to do so and for householders that have CCTV doorbells to also register.

A spokesperson for Kenilworth Watch said “We have been overwhelmed by the speed as which so many residents from across Kenilworth have signed up to the CCTV register so far. It shows there is a real great community spirit in our town. With 35 properties already registered we’d love to get the number to at least over 50 properties because that’s such a message about Kenilworth that will help drive crime prevention and encourage offenders miss out our town and go elsewhere.”

“We love to hear from people who have not yet got round to registering and also from householders who have “RING” type doorbells that record people approaching the door, it’s CCTV and it would be great to have it on the register.”

“All we need for residents to register is their name, address, email and ideally their telephone number and that’s it.” the spokesperson added.

Often CCTV images can help the police track or discover a wider level of activity by offenders. The Finham scheme has been successful in this respect. When several residents, who were signed up to the CCTV register, all provided images of persons approaching their property what resident’s thought were individual events were pieced together by police who then had evidence that the area was being targeted. Consequently, offenders were duly caught and prosecuted.

Kenilworth Camera Scheme hits over 25 in first week

KENILWORTH HOUSEHOLDERS are being praised for getting behind an innovative new scheme that aims to help residents and their local police prevent crime but also help detect crime more efficiently. In the first week of a new CCTV registration scheme over 25 Kenilworth householders who have CCTV have signed up.

The CCTV register works by using online mapping which enables Kenilworth Watch to review where any CCTV is situated in relation to the location of an incident.

“The CCTV register saves our police service hours and hours of trying to look and find out where any CCTV is located. The more residents that join the CCTV register the more we can help save hours of police time locating CCTV.” a Kenilworth Watch spokesperson said.

The system, which has been developed specifically for Kenilworth, is unique across Warwickshire. All householders data is secure, meets GDPR regulations and there is no direct access to householders CCTV involved.

“We are really pleased that in less than a week we already have over 25 households from all over parts of our town signed up to the register. What we’d like is to get all CCTV signed up so we can provide the best possible service to support our police teams and also send out a message to criminals that coming to Kenilworth is a bad idea because we are a united as a community when it comes to preventing and detecting crime.

We’d encourage anyone that has CCTV and who has only just heard of the scheme or who has yet to register to do so now.” a Kenilworth Watch spokesperson added.
