700 grant for CCTV in taxis

GRANTS are being offered so Liverpool taxis can be fitted with CCTV.

Liverpool’s Business Crime Direct team is relaunching the CCTV fund for Liverpool cabbies in light of recent success.

It is prepared to reimburse cabbies with 50% of the cost incurred from installing a standard CCTV system, up to 700.

A survey carried out by the team showed a previous CCTV drive was a resounding success, with 100% of cabbies questioned saying they felt the system had improved their own safety while at work, whilst 96% felt the system had been of use in gaining evidence in criminal incidents.

They all felt the system had prevented crimes from occurring.

Tommy McIntyre, head of the Taxi Drivers Branch of the TGWU union, said: “The scheme has been a resounding success.”
