Council’s CCTV control room staff help police catch moped driver


A moped rider was arrested and charged with driving offences, after he was captured driving erratically on Enfield Council’s CCTV cameras.

Council staff on duty at the Enfield Public Safety Centre (EPSC) in Edmonton alerted the Police to the incident that took place in Hertford Road, Enfield on Monday 29 August at 9.32pm.

Police officers were sent to the area and followed the moped rider to Princes Road, where he stopped and spoke to another man.

The suspect was questioned by police after driving illegally with no helmet, lights or a number plate and his moped was seized.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety & Cohesion, Cllr Gina Needs, said: “I was pleased to hear about the excellent work of our dedicated staff at the public safety centre, in helping the police to capture an individual who was endangering other road users and pedestrians.

“I am very grateful to the centre’s staff who work tirelessly 24/7 in the CCTV control room to help keep our residents safe.”

The EPSC helps the police in their investigations, enabling many arrests, provides vital evidence for trials and prosecutions, and helps to keep Enfield safe which is a Council priority.
