FOUR new CCTV cameras have been installed in Milford Haven, as part of a reinvestment in the surveillance system.

They are located at Upper Charles Street, Lower Charles Street, Hamilton Terrace and Great North Road.

The cameras, centrally monitored at Dyfed-Powys Police Headquarters, are now live and recording.

The work has been carried out as part of the Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn’s reinvestment in the CCTV provision across the force area.

Milford Haven is the seventh town out of a planned 17 locations to benefit from the reinvestment project.

Dafydd Llywelyn, Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “I am very pleased to be able to say that another town has benefited from my pledge to reinvest in CCTV. Two of my team were out and about in Milford Haven on the November 15 - as the new CCTV cameras were being installed – engaging with residents and business owners on my behalf.

"The feedback received was very positive: The community feels much safer with the return of CCTV to the area. I look forward to seeing the project being delivered further again over the coming months.”

Dyfed-Powys Police is working closely with contractors Baydale.

Dyfed-Powys Police Chief Constable Mark Collins said: “I am delighted that four cameras have been installed in Milford Haven in time for the busy build up to Christmas."

Mr Llywelyn and his team visited Milford Haven to speak to local business owners about the CCTV project, and to find out what their thoughts are on the reinstatement of cameras in the town.

All gave positive feedback including they felt it would bring peace of mind to businesses and that it should help with night-time economy-related issues in the town.

David Morgan, deputy manager of Lidl store, Milford Haven, said: “The new CCTV cameras will benefit the community and hopefully act as a deterrent. Whatever helps the community, all the better.”
