Work has started on a £229,000 upgrade on Boston’s CCTV system.

The new cameras will be less obtrusive but provide better optical clarity, delivering high-definition images – increasing the opportunity to identify potential criminals.

And the new system will even save cash – repaying the spend in operating and maintenance costs within three years.

The system operated by Boston Borough Council was installed in 1996 and has received just one small tweak since, in 2005 when recording switched from video to digital.
