Daventry’s new CCTV control rooms goes live

THE new control room for Daventry’s CCTV network has been officially opened.

The camera network had been run by DDC and monitored from a room in Northampton.

The district council said in April 2011 that in 12 months it would stop funding the project and asked others to step forward, leading to Daventry Town Council taking it on in April this year.

Initially the council planned to monitor the cameras from Daventry Police Station, but a new control room has now been set up on a town industrial estate.

The service will be run by a private firm which specialises in CCTV systems.

The Daventry Express was there at the launch – for the full story see the paper on Thursday.
