CCTV ready to go live in Westport

Independent Westport based councillor Chirsty Hyland has welcomed the progress on getting CCTV installed in Westport town. Cllr Hyland told the Mayo Advertiser that the first phase of the project is ready to go and be switched on in the coming weeks. He said: “It’s something that I have pushed hard on since I was first elected a town councillor. It’s great for the town, it won’t solve everything, but it will make people feel safer and can only be good.”

He went on to say: “It will be monitored 24 hours a day in the Garda station which is a massive benefit to all. It’s about being proactive and I’ve been very proactive on this issue and drove it on all the time.”

The system will go online once the required signage is put in place he explained: “It will be switched on as soon as the signage is put in place to say that CCTV is in operation in the town and we will be getting that up in the next few weeks. It’s just phase one of the project and we will hopefully get the rest up and running soon.”
