In response to Irish Rail’s letter which explained that they have closed the toilets at Newbridge station due to antisocial behaviour – can the council offer CCTV cover for the toilets to enable Irish Rail to keep the toilets open?
Here is the report: The provision of CCTV on private property to monitor antisocial behaviour is not a matter for Kildare County Council. The council’s current CCTV camera network relates to traffic management on public roads and off-street public car parks, and operates in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations. The outline costs for the provision of CCTV at a single location is €25,000 for the supply, installation, linkage to central monitoring systems, data monitoring, recording, and the provision of requested information in a digital format to An Garda Síochána. Annual maintenance and repair/calibration costs are in addition to the outline cost.
