North Somerset Council took advantage of a government funding scheme and introduced CCTV to the district in 1996, at the time 16 cameras were installed to cover Weston super Mare Town Centre. Later, additional cameras were installed in the town and the system was extended to cover the towns of Nailsea, Clevedon and Portishead.

Over the last few years, North Somerset Council has worked with Tyco to upgrade the entire CCTV system to become fully digital and more capable of assisting the police with crime investigations and bringing offenders to justice.
