Incommunities Housing Association is joining forces with Keighley Town Council in an effort to help bring down anti-social behaviour (ASB) and nuisance activity in the area.
Enforcement staff from Incommunities will be deploying one of their own mobile cameras and will provide CCTV monitoring support from within the West Yorkshire town.
Daily reports and footage will be shared with both the council and police.
Incommunities says the scheme will be regularly reviewed to make sure it is having a positive impact on keeping communities safe.
Cathy Chattaway, Tenancy Enforcement manager at Incommunities, said: “We are delighted to be working with Keighley Town Council and sharing our resources to help respond to localised cases of anti-social behaviour.
“Incommunities is committed to combating such activities across Keighley and the wider district and continue to work closely with local partners, including the police, to uphold the right of residents to live in safe and peaceful neighbourhoods.”
Councillor Javaid Akhtar, chair of the Watch and Transport Committee at Keighley Town Council, said: “I am happy that Incommunities will be working with the council in its endeavours to keep our areas safe, by tackling anti-social behaviour and crime hotspots with the mobile CCTV camera scheme.”
Akhtar added: “As we know with fixed camera CCTV, once people know of its location, the problem moves to another location.
“However, the advantage of mobile cameras is that it gives us the flexibility to move them to wherever the problems move to.”
