Following several incidents in the town recently, comments have been made on social media regarding the provision of CCTV in the town.

The systems that cover the town centre and parts of the Western Promenade are operated and monitored by Tendring Careline, part of Tendring District Council. There is also a monitoring and recording facility in the Town Council office.

The systems are fully operative and any incidents that they record of a criminal nature are passed on to the police.
