Members of Ashfield District Council’s cabinet voted to investigate the cost and benefits of upgrading cameras on the council’s parks to high-definition and infra-red capabilities. Councillors voted to continue exploring new advances in camera technology and to relocate underperforming cameras.

Councillor Jason Zadrozny, council leader, said: “All our CCTV works, records and is monitored.

“However, we think there is still room for improvement to deter and catch criminals.”
