Closed Circuit Television Cameras are set to change the nature of policing in many of the towns across West Cork with Clonakilty being the latest town to go live in November. Cork Southwest TD Jim Daly has welcomed the installation of eight new security cameras erected at strategic locations throughout the town of Clonakilty and confirmed that Clonakilty will be looking to further extend the number of cameras in the coming months. Deputy Daly confirmed that he is working with the local Garda Superintendent, the Chamber of Commerce and the Community Council in Dunmanway to prepare an application for the erection of security cameras in the town. Meanwhile works are progressing in Skibbereen town to prepare the infrastructure necessary to erect the cameras throughout the town, which should happen early in the New Year. Bantry Town has already got security cameras installed throughout the town since last year.

“CCTV cameras installed at strategic locations throughout the town can greatly enhance the policing of any town and provide a sense of security to residents, businesses and visitors alike. West Cork is an extremely safe and popular location for residents and visitors and the monitoring of security cameras will only enhance that reputation,” according to Fine Gael TD Jim Daly

Deputy Daly also confirmed that he has issued an invitation to Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald to visit West Cork to view some of the CCTV systems and the contribution they are making to the safe policing of the area.
