Has it ever been instrumental in securing a conviction for a crime in the town?

OK so the town has CCTV, which must be a good thing. How many cameras are there?

I read something recently can't remember if it was in the local paper that it was due to be upgraded but it has always been something of a white elephant.  The monitors that were at one time in the Manor are not monitored and it is non functional after dark it was ill conceived from the start and is now 8 or 10 years old and needs a full overhaul and update. I dont believe it has been instrumental in securing a conviction there are cameras covering Park Road, Queen Street, The Strand, Brunswick Place, and Tucks Plot Piermont Place.

The cables are still in place along the Brook and on the Manor Bridge so i presume the moniters are still at the Manor.

I remember Dom Joly visiting Dawlish to poke fun at the CCTV on a televison programme.  This thread from that time shows people thought it was a complete joke even then.  And the esteemed Mayor of the day with her silly hats is still a force in the town, what a scary thought.
