Bids are being invited for£153 million of government money for CCTV systems.

Local crime and disorder reduction partnerships are to make initial proposals by July for projects aimed at combating town centre crime and regenerating housing estates.

Home secretary Jack Straw said: 'CCTV is a very valuable weapon in the fight against crime. This£153m programme represents the biggest- ever investment in CCTV and will make a real difference to local communities.'

Details of the bidding process are included in the CCTV initiative application prospectus, which has been sent to chief constables, council chief executives, police authority clerks and representatives of crime and disorder groups.
