Why do we have CCTV cameras?
The CCTV system is made up of public space CCTV cameras in the Neath and Port Talbot town centres. Additionally, we also have CCTV cameras located along the Aberavon Seafront and outside Baglan library.
By utilising CCTV we aim to:
- Improve public safety
- Assist in the identification and reduction of crime within the county
- Reduce anti-social behaviour within the areas monitored within the CCTV boundaries
