Devon district's CCTV system 'helps arrest 600 people'

Nearly 600 arrests have been made in part of south Devon in the past year as a result of a local CCTV system, its operators say.

There are 48 cameras in the Teignbridge district and they operate in towns including Bovey Tracey, Chudleigh, Dawlish and Newton Abbot.

The service is run by the district council, police, and a security firm. Store detectives are also involved.

Operators said that £60,000-worth of stolen goods had also been recovered.
