Findings from the consultation show 92% of the 341 respondents canvassed think Lincoln requires a public CCTV system, with 91% believing it to be either ‘Very important’ or ‘Important’. However, over a third of people felt that responsibility should be more equally shared between the council, the police and local businesses.
John Bibby, Director of Housing and Community Services at the City of Lincoln Council, said: “It’s clear from our initial public consultation that most people who completed the survey value the CCTV service in Lincoln for various reasons.
