CCTV has played a proactive role in fighting crime in Sedgemoor since October 1994. Originally set up to respond to public concerns about high levels of car crime and public disorder, the facility has grown to include several residential areas. The Council also works in partnership with South Somerset District Council monitoring cameras located in Yeovil and Taunton Deane Borough Council monitoring cameras in Taunton and Wellington.
The CCTV control centre continues to grow and diversify partly by investment from external agencies, crime partnerships and the local police. By the end of 2015 the control room was monitoring 149 cameras, day and night, 365 days a year.
