UK's Look CCTV Wins StageCoach Deal for Bus CCTV

SPY camera specialist Look CCTV has signed a lucrative deal with one of the UK's biggest bus companies.
The Poulton company has lined a £3.7m deal with Stagecoach to supply cameras for its new fleet of vehicles.
Under the three-year contract, hundreds of new Stagecoach buses will be fitted with Look systems technology.
Digital CCTV systems provide bus and coach operators with a powerful tool to combat crime on buses and reduce fraudulent insurance claims.
Andrew Prince, managing
director of Look which is based at Wyrefields, said: "We are delighted to be awarded this exclusive three-year CCTV deal with Stagecoach.
"This will allow us to further
develop our CCTV technologies for bus and coach operators."
Look CCTV has installed more than 18,000 digital TV systems in coaches and buses across the UK.
It includes wireless network
applications which help make the maintenance of CCTV more
efficient and also provides improved video and audio recording.
Les Warneford, managing director of Stagecoach UK Bus, said: "The safety and security of our customers and our people is fundamental to our business and
public transport is the safest way to travel.
"We have worked with Look CCTV for a number of years."
Stagecoach, which operates 7,000 buses across the UK, already makes extensive use of Look CCTV technology across its fleet.
Mr Warneford said: "Buses are the country's most popular form of public transport and crime on buses is extremely low. However, even the fear of crime can act as a deterrent to travel.
"CCTV has a proven track record of making passengers feel safe, cutting crime and anti-social behaviour and helping track down offenders."
Look CCTV employs 38 technical staff and has a national network of maintenance and support engineers.
The company was established in 1989 and initially provided
conventional tape-based CCTV
systems for buses and coaches.
