£1,086.40 for “2 no Wine colour KAB Controller Chairs @ £543.20 each”.
£7,250.00 for a “Domehawk camera with DVR and encoder” – bought from Mel Secure Systems. .
CCTV staff costs for 2008/9 were broken down to: £300,448.27 in basic pay, £3,149.29 in “additions to pay”, £22,380.37 in national insurance and £45,750.08 in pensions contributions.
The total spending on the CCTV cost centre in 2008/9 was £491,430.20
Magdalene college is the only non-council institution to pay fees and charges to the council for CCTV services. (The county council pays £5,200 for coverage of the bus station, and there are internal charges to the housing department and a £72,200 fee paid by East Cambs District Council – which I expect is due to the fact Cambridge’s CCTV system covers Ely and Soham)
