Leisure centres operated by Leeds City Council have been fitted with comprehensive CCTV systems under a fast-tracked scheme designed to boost safety and security. 

Security Specialist, 2020 Vision Systems Ltd, has now completed its 20th system in leisure centres across the city and has subsequently been awarded a maintenance contract to ensure the equipment continues to provide top quality results. 

According to Mark Allman, Head of Sport and Active Recreation for Leeds City Council, everything has gone very well. “Leeds City Council operates a wide variety of leisure centres and we continue to try and improve the service we offer to our customers all of the time. On-site security is a really important issue and we have been very encouraged with customers’ comments so far.” 

The contract required the first 17 centres to be fitted out within just eight weeks and so 2020 Vision had to adopt an efficient way of working. “We had three teams,” says Neil Titterington, Sales Manager. “Teams doing the first and second fix cabling were closely followed by commissioning engineers, who also trained the clients.” 

All sites have car parking and indoor facilities while some also have outdoor pitches as well and therefore the project has involved installation of a mix of external and internal cameras. Internal CCTV will help ensure the safety of customers as it can alert staff to any incidents or potential problems as well as showing what happened if anything does occur. 

Monitoring takes place from each centre’s reception desk during opening hours. Cameras continue to record out of hours so that any incidents could be investigated. The system keeps watch over most of the public areas such as car parks, corridors and lobbies as well as any areas of particular vulnerability. 

2020 Vision specialises in CCTV, access control as well as the integration of security systems to provide simplified central control. It operates in the north of England and southern Scotland. It has installed CCTV systems in an extensive range of environments such as universities, hospitals, casinos, sports stadiums and government offices.
