The use of Northampton Borough Council's CCTV helped to reduce commercial burglaries this April following a spike in crime in the town centre.
CCTV operators aided the Neighbourhood Policing Team's investigations into these burglaries by helping to identify potential suspects for stop and search purposes.
Thanks to this and footage gained during burglaries, three offenders were identified.
Two of the offenders were arrested on the streets of Northampton and both charged with burglary and handling stolen property offences. More »
A third offender was arrested after activating alarms installed by the Northamptonshire Police's Crime Prevention Team and being tracked by CCTV operators. The offender is currently on remand awaiting trial.
Between January and March, there was a rise in burglaries in St Giles Street and Abington Street, with a number of businesses targeted multiple times during this time frame. However, since the investigation in April, a decrease in overnight burglaries in the town centre has been recorded.
Councillor Anna King, Cabinet member for community engagement and safety, said: "Our CCTV systems play a vital part in making Northampton a great and safer place to live, work and visit.
"With the rise in town centre burglaries earlier this year, town centre businesses were left feeling particularly vulnerable, so we're pleased that our partnership working has helped to bring the main offenders to justice."
Chief Superintendent Mick Stamper, head of Neighbourhood Policing at Northamptonshire Police, said: "We've worked in partnership with Northampton Borough Council for many years and our officers have put a lot of work into these investigations. As ever we're grateful for the support of the CCTV team and look forward to continuing to work together to make Northampton safer for all." » Less

Today marks the start of Neighbourhood Watch Week 2019 where we'll be celebrating the amazing work our volunteers do in their communities. We'll be looking at areas where you expect Neighbourhood Watch to operate in and around (burglary) as well as some more unexpected ones (knife violence and social isolation).
Our message this year is that when it comes to Neighbourhood Watch, there is #MoreThanYouExpect. More »
To kick start the week we have today launched Neighbourhood Watch Inspiration, a collection of the most innovative work being undertaken by our volunteers across England and Wales.
The database contains examples of how Neighbourhood Watch groups are changing their communities for the better. In each case, volunteers explain how they developed their project, the impact it had on their community and how they overcame any challenges.
Neighbourhood Watch Inspiration allows users to contact the author of each example with the hope of generating fruitful conversations between members.
Stay connected with Neighbourhood Watch on Facebook and Twitter where all this week we'll be showcasing the full range of activities our volunteers undertake to improve their neighbourhoods using the hashtag: #MoreThanYouExpect.
We're encouraging members to tell their stories on social media. How has Neighbourhood Watch helped your community? Why should people start their own schemes? Be sure to use our hashtag when you post!
All the best.
