COUNCILLORS are calling for high level policing in Buntingford instead of closed-circuit television cameras which they believe are an 'intrusion on privacy'.
The move comes after the charity, Relief In Need, wrote to the council with concerns about vandalism in the town. They suggested the council introduce lighting and closed-circuit television camera, however, the council disagreed.
Deputy town clerk, Eddie Plume said: "There are so many sites in Buntingford, you would need dozens of cameras. If you look at the level of vandalism we have, it wouldn't be worth it. You would be putting all these cameras up to cover just one or two minor incidents."
The Neighbourhood Panel is currently addressing the issue.
