SIR - I just wanted to show my support for CCTV to be installed in Hatfield Town Centre.

I am a CCTV installer myself and was reading the article about the latest burgulary at the hair salon in the town centre. Here the owner expressed her concerns over there being no trade after 4pm because shoppers were too scared to enter the town.

I have been approached by the traders of the market place, who independently have asked me to quote for a sophisticated CCTV system. This is due to the amount of criminal damage to their shops and other criminal activities. They have obviously had enough and are now desperate.

So why should they have to invest their money to make the market place safer?

I also find it hard to believe that a plying field in WGC ( King George V ) has better security with CCTV than any public area in Hatfield (The Galleria shopping centre and the pretty new police station being an exception).

I understand that King George V has its problems, but surely CCTV in Hatfield Town centre is much more important to the traders and the safety of the general public?
