Well done to Stuart Parker who was praised by the local police team in Cirencester for his "excellent work" in assisting the police to locate a violent offender. His "quick thinking and clear communication" was particularly commended as if it had not been for that, it would have led to large scale disorder. The offender was arrested.

Enigma’s CCTV site in Stafford is to star in Channel 5’s television series, ‘Caught on Camera’.

The show focusses on the benefits of CCTV cameras in society and screens incidents in which CCTV has helped catch criminals and secured convictions or assisted the public and authorities in a range of incidents.

Stafford Borough Council was especially chosen by the show’s producers owing to its successful partnerships with businesses, local police and other organisations, which have resulted in cutting crime in the area.

The CCTV operation is based in the town’s Civic Centre and the Operations team consists of Barbara Ashton and Marc Wood. The team are currently in the process of recruiting further Operatives.

The production team spent many hours reviewing footage and filming on the streets of Stafford both through the day and at weekend nights as well as speaking at length with Barbara, pictured, who, for once, got to experience life in front of the cameras rather than behind it.

She said: "The film crew was keen to see footage of the day-to-day operations from the CCTV Control Room. I showed them how we responded to calls from businesses and the police to a range of issues where they needed the help of CCTV in successfully catching offenders.

"It is important we get good footage of the incidents so it can be used in future prosecutions if required – and this is something that the film crew were keen to capture.

"It was a new and different experience being in front of the camera rather than my usual role of being the one behind the camera, so to speak. But because the job requires a lot of concentration, and you are always focussed on what you are doing, I very soon forgot the TV cameras were there. I can't wait until Wednesday to see how it will actually come across on the telly."

Enigma would like to congratulate all the CCTV Operators based at the Stafford site for all their hard work and for the deserved national recognition they have received.

The episode will be aired on 10th June 2015 at 9pm on Channel 5.

Enigma’s newly acquired CCTV site in Stafford was recently the subject of Channel 5’s television series, ‘Caught on Camera’.

The show focusses on the benefits of CCTV cameras in society and screens incidents in which CCTV has helped catch criminals and secured convictions or assisted the public and authorities in a range of incidents.

Stafford Borough Council was especially chosen by the show’s producers owing to its successful partnerships with businesses, local police and other organisations, which have resulted in cutting crime in the area.

The CCTV operation is based in the town’s Civic Centre and the Operations team consists of Barbara Ashton, Gavin Dippie, Michael Perryman and new recruit, Chad Bloor.

The production team spent many hours reviewing footage and filming on the streets of Stafford both through the day and at weekend nights as well as speaking at length with Barbara, pictured below, who, for once, got to experience life in front of the cameras rather than behind it.

She said: "The film crew was keen to see footage of the day-to-day operations from the CCTV Control Room. I showed them how we responded to calls from businesses and the police to a range of issues where they needed the help of CCTV in successfully catching offenders.

"It is important we get good footage of the incidents so it can be used in future prosecutions if required – and this is something that the film crew were keen to capture. "It was a new and different experience being in front of the camera rather than my usual role of being the one behind the camera, so to speak.

Our CCTV Operators working at the local police Control Room in Cirencester have been commended for their excellent work in helping the police to uncover an elaborate scam designed to cheat innocent people out of their bank savings.

Police officers stopped criminals in their tracks at an ATM outside Tescos in the town centre last month. Initially, a number of calls came in from victims in Siddington and Cirencester which showed a pattern. The alleged offenders had made a series of telephone calls, posing as Metropolitan Police officers.

They told the householders to go and get their cash card and then to call the number on the reverse immediately. This was a trick, as the offenders stayed on the line, not having hung up, then posed as bank employees who asked for the PIN details. The “bank employees” then said that a courier would be round to pick up the card to take it to the Met Police. The so-called “couriers” were sometimes also the alleged offenders of course, however on other occasions, taxi drivers who had no connection with the scam were used instead.

After several reports of this type of call, local Cotswolds police put out a release warning residents of this scam, but also mounted a proactive offensive. Taxi firms were warned to look out for suspicious activity by cashpoint machines and Cirencester’s CCTV operators were tipped off.

This approach paid off as officers who had attended a victim’s address, monitored CCTV footage and saw individuals using the cash point machine who matched a description of the “couriers” who had attended the original house.

Officers attended the scene and arrested two individuals. They then did a subsequent search and found a third offender sitting in a car nearby and arrested him too. Officers had to work quickly as from the time of collection to the use at the cash point, there was only a small window of opportunity.

The case will now be dealt with, in the courts. Enigma wishes to congratulate the whole team at Cirencester for their great work in helping the local police to apprehend these criminals. Keep it up!

Excellent CCTV work helps to catch vandals

The CCTV team at Hereford has been praised by the client for their excellent work, after it assisted the local police in catching two vandals who were subsequently arrested for causing criminal damage.

The incident, which was reported in the county’s biggest newspaper, the Hereford Times, involved two men, aged 22 and 21, who were spotted by our operators, spraying an iconic statue in the grounds of the Hereford Cathedral.

Special mentions go to operator Jamie Griffiths, whose diligent observational skills helped the police to eventually track down and arrest the criminals.

The client contacted us to say that she was “extremely pleased with the result and that the Cathedral Trust were also pleased.”

Sales Director, Andrew Thompson, is pictured presenting CCTV Operator, Jamie Griffiths, with a certificate of commendation.

Enigma would like to congratulate the whole team at Hereford – keep up the excellent work!

Enigma Completes Acquisition of Remploy CCTV Business

Enigma CCTV Ltd (a subsidiary of Enigma Security Solutions Ltd) is proud to announce that it has completed its takeover of the Remploy CCTV Business.

Following the announcement that the Government subsidy for Remploy’s Enterprise Businesses would be withdrawn by September 2013, the Remploy CCTV business was put up for sale earlier this year.

The business attracted several bids and each bid was assessed against various criteria including ensuring the continued employment of disabled people, sustainability of the business and value for money.

The CCTV business consists of sixteen sites stretching across the length and breadth of the UK from Inverness in Scotland to Truro in Cornwall. The Operators work for various local authorities, including local government and police forces.

As part of Enigma’s takeover of these sites, it has also transferred over 90 employees including our new General Manager, Richard Williams, as well as our new Operations Support Manager, Alan Prosser. Enigma would like to formally welcome each and every employee that has transferred over to us and wish them well for their future career with Enigma.

Speaking about the transfer, new General Manager, Richard Williams, said: “I am pleased that we are now part of a fantastic organisation that values its people and customers, and is also one of the most highly accredited in the security sector. The benefit of us joining Enigma is that the resources available and the systems in place, along with the drive to raise standards in the industry, mean that we will get even better at what we do.”

Enigma CEO, Glen Webley, added:What excites me is the potential that I can see for Enigma’s new CCTV business. I truly believe that if we retain and build on the existing business, we can really develop it into a thriving, sustainable enterprise which can continue to grow and get even better.”

Enigma is aiming to consolidate and expand its newly acquired CCTV business and is committed to continuing Remploy’s ethos of providing employment opportunities for people with disabilities. As such, it is currently engaging with Disability Rights UK, Remploy Employment Services, The Shaw Trust and regional disability charities as well as local Disability Employment Advisors at Jobcentre Plus.
