The Fylde CCTV system is designed to make the borough a safer and more welcoming place at any time of the day or night. The purpose of the CCTV is to:
- Assist in reducing the fear of crime and anti-social behaviour
- Help to prevent crime and anti-social behaviour
- Assist in the prosecution of offenders
There are 15 permanent cameras in the council’s CCTV system. They are operated by Wyre Council from the Civic Centre in Poulton-le-Fylde. A map of each area can be accessed by clicking on the links on this page. In addition, we have six rapid redeployable cameras that can be deployed temporarily to cover areas where there may be particular issues.
Fylde Council is registered with the Information Commissioners Office and has clear procedures in place which includes how the system is used and when to disclose information.
