Security cameras have been installed at recreational areas across Woodville to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.
Woodville Parish Council has spent £3,000 installing CCTV to reduce crime and combat anti-social behaviour.
CCTV has been installed at Woodville Recreation Ground, Occupation Lane sports pavilion and the cricket ground, in Burton Road, Woodville.
The parish council said it wants to provide a safe and secure environment for members of the public and staff and to prevent the loss or damage to property.
It is hoped the system will reduce the fear of crime and provide reassurance to the public and provide the police with evidence to take criminal and civil action in the courts where necessary.
The parish council received a £2,500 grant from South Derbyshire Safer Neighbourhoods' community funding project and a £500 grant from Derbyshire County Council members’ community leadership scheme to pay for the cost of the project.
