Sergeant Daniel Smith of Norfolk Constabularysaid: “We’re really pleased that the Safer Streets Funding has given us and our partners in Great Yarmouth Borough Council funding to install these cameras across Gorleston, with the aim to help residents, businesses and visitors to feel safer.”
Minister for Crime and Policing, Kit Malthouse said: “I’m pleased to see the Government’s Safer Streets Fund is being put to good use in communities like Gorleston.
“Through three rounds of this fund we have invested £70 million into local authorities and police forces across the UK as part of our priority to make the streets safer for everyone.
“We’ve seen the impact this funding can have on communities, and I hope local residents and visitors alike will feel safer with these new CCTV cameras in place.”
