London Borough of Hackney

As the borough’s CCTV contractor, Dennis Johns was asked to provide a security solution for the new, four storey, state-of-the-art Customer Service Centre.

Contract Length:
6 weeks, maintained within the Hackney term contract


Services Provided:
CCTV Installation

The Brief
To design, commission, implement and maintain security.

The Outcome:

After designs were approved for the project, the installation of the following went into effect:

120 CCTV cameras
150 intruder alarms
60 personal attack systems (fitted and radio)
Operating systems
Receive and control equipment
Fibre link to CCTV control centre in Hackney – meaning that there was no need to dig up the streets to lay the cables
Cable containment.

All parts of the system are configured to work with each other, so if an alarm is triggered, the closest camera turns to focus on that area. Images are then sent to the nearest monitor and the police station.


All parts of the system work together, to ensure maximum efficiency and maximum security coverage.

Each stage of design, implementation and maintenance was undertaken by Dennis Johns.
