Earlier this year Wayne Clamp retired as senior manager at LeedsWatch. During a career that spanned more than 30 years he witnessed CCTV coverage in Leeds grow from a handful of cameras to a system that stretches across West Yorkshire -one of the biggest integrated networks in the UK.

any local authorities and public space managers continue to face budgetary challenges. In the face of cuts to local government funding, thrift is a necessity. Every penny spent must be justified. Local government departments with outdated CCTV control rooms are thus presented with a challenge: do we upgrade our surveillance capacity or watch our CCTV systems decay? For some, you can't put a price on public safety, even in austere times.

icomply customer, Mark Babington of Centro, helps to raise over £18,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care in 427 mile bike ride, enough to run his local hospice for 2.5 days. Can we help him nudge that up to 3 days?
Yes, it’s that time of year again: June; the month of the annual IFSEC International trade show. Providing a global stage for security innovation and expertise at London ExCeL from 16-18 June 2015, IFSEC is well worth a visit.
