Carluke BID has commissioned two tranches of CCTV installations into 9 Carluke shops. These are for High Definition cameras with HD recorders and monitors.

The aim is to catch vandals on video and thus to deter antisocial behaviour, criminal damage, vandalism and graffiti.

The systems will be installed from this coming Monday. Contractors will be contacting the shopkeepers direct.

If the project is successful in reducing vandalism, then the option remains to expand it moving forward where dark spots in the town require surveillance.
