More CCTV in Lancaster for citizen safety

We the undersigned petition the council to increase the amount of CCTV to ensure the safety of people walking at night.

In the past few months there have been many cases of serious assaults at night (mostly towards women) in the whole area of Lancaster City, especially the residential areas surrounding the city centre. Even if they get reported, the Police have not been able to identify many of the assailants due to the lack of CCTV in most of the city.
As a woman requesting this e-petition, I feel unsafe even walking around my own neighbourhood, particularly after these past few months and this increase in assaults.

On reaching 500 signatures a petition may be presented and received by a meeting of Council.

This ePetition runs from 17/06/2022 to 18/08/2022.
