The town’s CCTV, supported by volunteers, is run and funded by Oswestry Town Council in partnership with Oswestry BID and Selattyn and Gobowen Parish Council. It is an award-winning initiative and one that attracts a lot of envy from around the county. The CCTV system is very much appreciated by the police and is predominately used as a reactive tool. In 2022, we carried out 164 reviews of evidence of which 74 resulted in us providing evidence for court prosecutions. Additionally, the cameras installed on the Industrial Estate have been particularly successful at detecting criminal activity.
