The evaluation of the trial operation of a video surveillance system in steinweg, which lasted several months, has been completed. Accordingly, there was no reduction in security-related crimes in the months of april to june inclusive, so that a continuation is "currently not planned is. This was announced by the police headquarters of upper franconia on friday.
On easter sunday, a trial operation of a video surveillance system in the steinweg started, initially planned for two months. The reason for this measure was the "kneipenmeile" (pub mile) steinweg again and again registered crimes, which occur predominantly at the typical going out times. Recordings were therefore made on saturdays, sundays and public holidays between 0 and 6 a.M. The operation of the cameras was extended by june. After the end of the trial operation, the police headquarters of upper franconia, in close cooperation with the coburg police department, evaluated and assessed the operation.
"A noticeable reduction in the number of offences could not be determined", it says now in the message of the police headquarters upper franconia. In fact, the coburg police recorded even more offenses against persons compared to the average number in previous years. During the period, the police recorded 19 offenses instead of the average of 17 offenses in previous years. "The increase, however, is probably due to the mild weather, which is good for the time of year", suspects the police.
