Cameras installed in Limavady as Causeway Coast and Glens PCSP address schools’ ongoing vandalism
C

Causeway Coast and Glens Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) has stepped in to address anti-social behaviour in Limavady by installing new temporary cameras in an area of the town.

The equipment has been put in place along a laneway between St Mary’s High School and Limavady High School, after a series of incidents left both schools counting the cost of vandalism.

They reached out for assistance from the PCSP, and as a temporary measure anti-social behaviour cameras, along with covert cameras, have been installed to act as a deterrent.

Speaking jointly, the School Principals, Mr Darren Mornin and Mrs Rita Moore, said: “Ongoing damage to school windows was costing a considerable amount of money which could be spent elsewhere. We would urge those involved to think about their actions and the consequences and ask that anyone with information contacts the PSNI immediately. We all have a role to play in stamping out this type of behaviour.”

PCSP Chairperson Councillor Oliver McMullan said: “Anti-social behaviour remains a top priority for Causeway Coast and Glens PCSP and we try to provide practical assistance where possible to those whose lives are blighted by it.”
