MHK seeks CCTV statistics

Sat, 28 Jan 2012

The Home Affairs Minister is to be asked for details about CCTV being used to fight crime in Douglas.

Douglas South MHK Kate Beecroft will ask Juan Watterson how many recorded crimes there were in the Island's capital in the last three years, and how many of these had CCTV evidence presented as part of the prosecution's evidence.

She'll also seek details about the number of cameras around the town, how many times police asked to see CCTV footage, and whether there have been any cases where CCTV alone has been enough to secure a prosecution.

All the figures will be based on the three year period from 2009 to the end of 2011.

Mr Watterson will provide the answer in written form in Tuesday's House of Keys sitting.
