  1. When you bear in mind the amount of CCTV cameras around, it’s amazing how many of them provide awful images!

    I agree Chris, by now CCTV sytems should be giving much clearer images. It is important that all the CCTV cameras in the Borough of Greenwich are switched on and properly managed and monitored.

    I think the Police are better at monitoring CCTV and do a much better job than the Local Authorities and can send quicker responses when an incident arisies and a quick response is needed.
