Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council

Big plans for keeping our communities safe

CCTV in the Borough


The CCTV Control Room is based in a state-of art, purpose built surveillance centre in central Stockton, located next to Stockton Police station with direct telephone and video link to Police Headquarters.

We currently monitor Closed Circuit Television Cameras covering the following locations:

  •         Town Centre locations  Stockton, Billingham and Yarm
  •         Estates and Surrounding areas
  •         Pay and Display Car Parks
  •         Parks and Cemeteries
  •         School and Academies
  •         Plus many more covering local businesses and private property

All cameras are designed to meet criminal evidence standards set by the Home Office.

In the last year 461 arrests in the Borough were facilitated by Council CCTV. We carried out 1,344 reviews of CCTV images and 870 produced something of evidential value.
