MACROOM Town Council is to investigate the possibility of installing an advanced CCTV system to monitor the streets of the town.

The security camera system, estimated to cost approximately €40,000 to install, would provide Gardai with 24/7 images of the town's main street and may even be able to detect the number plates of vehicles reported for criminal activity.

The Council is to study the installation of a similar system in Kanturk to see how it works.

Extra investment in the technology could see a system whereby the cameras automatically read car number plates and cross reference them against a database of vehicles reported to the Gardai for criminal activity.
