Salford addresses crime prevention and detection

August 27, 2010 -- The UK’s Salford Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership is reaping the benefits, while criminals pay the price, of a multi award winning crime prevention project. Using state of the art technology and up to date information, the system has already resulted in a reduction in crime rates and a reduction in the fear of crime. The project has the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG), the definitive land and property database for the whole of England and Wales – at its heart.

“What we needed was a map based solution with an incident pinpointing tool that enabled us to quickly and accurately locate an incident, identify possible high quality CCTV coverage and the means to request coverage from any camera owner.” commented Paul Coward, Corporate GIS Consultant at Salford City Council. As part of the project, Salford developed an online service, accessible via the Council’s public facing website, which enabled visitors to identify and record CCTV camera locations on a map before adding contact and camera information.

“The NLPG is in effect the glue that holds the whole thing together enabling us to accurately locate an incident, identify cameras in the vicinity and secure footage for crime detection. The system has also led to better liaison between partner organisations and agencies resulting in proactive monitoring and increased use of existing resources for applications such as emergency planning, insurance claim investigation and targeting benefit fraud.”

Salford City Council was recognised for their innovation and performance by winning the 2009 ‘National Land and Property Gazetteer’ Exemplar Award for Most Innovative Use. Salford CCTV GIS was also awarded the 2008 prize for ‘CCTV Innovation and Management’ by the CCTV Users Forum.
