Police in Levenmouth have installed an additional CCTV camera in Kennoway following complaints about persistent crime and anti-social behaviour in the area.
The extra camera has been put up after concerns were raised at a public meeting and also as a result of a serious assault which occurred in the town during March.
This domehawk CCTV camera at Jordan Lane will supplement existing open space CCTV and support local officers’ ongoing efforts to prevent and detect anti-social behaviour in the area.
The camera can capture CCTV evidence that can be presented in court, should it be required, and the area’s Community Sergeant, Mike Collins, told members of the public at a recent ward community surgery in Leven that the extra lens would be provided in Kennoway.
His colleague, Inspector Tom Brown, said: “Domehawk CCTV cameras can be used to good effect in areas suffering from persistent crime and anti-social behaviour. However, it can only be a temporary measure.
“The siting of a camera at Jordan Lane will complement our conventional policing efforts to address the problems in the area. It will also act as a deterrent in the area and assist us in tracing people who are purchasing alcohol on behalf of youths.
“Officers will continue to patrol the area and will rigorously enforce curfew bail conditions imposed on some of the youth element who were recently reported for persistent offending.
“I am hopeful that our ongoing efforts will yield positive results for the Kennoway community and allay some fears that were expressed at the recent public meeting.
“In addition, Campaign Against Violence officers will be patrolling the Kennoway and Leven areas over the weekend.”
