Carrick CCTV Project was formed with the aim to provide a state of the art community-based CCTV system to help maintain the town’s reputation as a safe place to live, work and visit. The initiative, which has community-wide support, will cost an estimated €110k (with a possible grant of €40k from the Department of Justice) leaving a shortfall of €70k. Now the community is seeking donations from residents, businesses and the wider Leitrim diaspora towards the costs.
The proposed CCTV system for Carrick-on-Shannon comprises 11 cameras at strategic locations with number plate recognition providing almost seamless cover and 24-hour coverage of the approach roads, town centre and riverside areas. When completed the town will be a measurably safer place in which to live, work, visit, moor and enjoy.
We really appreciate all the help that you can give towards this community initiative.
