Funding has been secured for six new CCTV cameras to help tackle anti-social behaviour in Heysham.
This follows a slight increase in the number of reports of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage in the village and on the Combermere Estate since July of last year.
PCSO Dennis Nelson, of the area’s Heysham South ward, decided to write to a local charitable organisation, the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes (RAOB), who had previously donated to local good causes.
Dennis was “astounded” by the RAOB’s response, as they were prepared to donate £600 to buy six new CCTV cameras.
PCSO Dennis Nelson said: “These cameras will be used to provide reassurance to the vulnerable members of our community who have been affected by anti-social behaviour.”
