FIVE new state-of-the-art CCTV cameras have been installed and are live and recording at Tenby.
The cameras are located at High Street, South Parade, Tudor Square, St George St, and Upper Frog Street.
A sixth camera will soon be installed near the harbour when a new pole has been erected.
More than 120 cameras are being installed in 17 towns throughout the Dyfed-Powys Police force area.
Work is due to start in Haverfordwest this week and should be completed by the end of the month.
A modern CCTV monitoring room is also being introduced in the Force Communication Centre at Police Headquarters, Llangunnor.
Divisional commander for Pembrokeshire, Superintendent Ross Evans said: “It is a very positive move to have these cameras up and running in Tenby.
“The town attracts a huge number of visitors to the area as the holiday season starts up again in spring. Having the cameras in place in readiness of this influx of visitors can only help us to keep everyone as safe as possible and assist us in carrying out quality investigations when required.”
Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn has been out and about in Tenby speaking to business owners to see what they think about the reinvestment in CCTV in the town.
Syed Ejaz from The Royal Lion Hotel, High street, said: “I’m really happy with the Commissioner’s CCTV initiative.”
Michaela Edwards from Café No.25, High Street, said: “I think this is a good idea and should have been done sooner.”
Diane Richards from The Pet Shop, Tenby Market, said: “I’m very happy to see CCTV back up and running for a safer Tenby, especially for the summer months. It’s very welcome.”
Lee Davies from Scentinelle, High street, said: “CCTV is a welcome addition to the armoury of the local police, may it serve you well.”
