New CCTV at local Meriden shops after campaign by councillor

 Published on: 10th April 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

New full-time CCTV cameras have been installed Watford Borough Council in the Gossamers shops in the Meriden estate after a campaign led by local councillor Amanda Grimston.

The CCTV cameras are being installed after a number of incidents of anti-social behaviour and drug taking in the area.

As well as the new cameras, Amanda has ensured there are more high profile police patrols in the area including a recent police operation that stopped over 800 vehicles as part of an anti-drugs operation.

Liberal Democrat Meriden councillor Amanda Grimston said: “I’m really pleased that these new cameras have been installed. Residents often raise with me their concerns about crime and anti- social behaviour and I’ve been working closely with the police and Watford Borough Council to make sure they are listened to. I want everyone in our estate to feel like they are safe.”

Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said, “Congratulations to Amanda who I know has been working hard with the police to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in the Meriden. Across our town I’m working with the police to do all I can to take this issue seriously, including making sure we have more police on our streets to tackle crime.”
