Q32 Councillor Cieran Perry
To ask the Manager in relation to the CCTV at the bottle bank on Carnlough Road
A CCTV Camera was installed at bottle bank at Carnlough Road in February 2011 and removed in June 2011 as the number of offences had decreased.
A total of 31 litter fines were issued, 19 fines paid, 4 cancelled on appeal, 4 prosecutions initiated and 4 lapsed.
It would not be Dublin City Councils intention to install a permanent CCTV at this location as there are other bottle bank locations throughout the city which will require the use of a mobile CCTV system.
One direct prosecution was initiated.

Q38 Councillor Cieran Perry
To ask the Manager to provide details of the CCTV system in operation in Drumalee and confirm where the system is monitored and verify that the system is functioning correctly
There are two separate CCTV systems currently operating in the Drumalee Estate. One covers Drumalee Court exclusively. Cameras on this system are connected to a digital recorder based on site. When incidents are reported any relevant footage is downloaded from the recorder. This system is operating as intended and has provided the Gardai with information on a number of incidents.
The second system was installed some years ago and is concentrated on the wider Drumalee Estate. Problems have been experienced with this system and it has, in the past, been the subject of some vandalism. In order to provide more consistent coverage it is now proposed to integrate this system with other local systems and a full report on how best to achieve this integration is currently being prepared.
