Images of city's most wanted criminals to be beamed on to historic landmarks

Posted on 4:01 AM by Sameer Shah

Huge images of a city's most wanted criminals are to be beamed on to buildings as part of a groundbreaking crime-busting initiative, it was revealed today.

The scheme could also see pictures of missing person appeals projected on to historic monuments overnight in Southampton.

Hampshire constabulary are considering using the Bargate monument or the city's new police building, which is still being built, to display their messages.

They have already secured a £3,000 projector thanks to government funding from the Tackling Knives Action Programme.

Chief Inspector Alison Scott said the images would be beamed in a bid to engage more with the public.

She said: ‘It is all about communication with as many people as possible.

‘We are looking at using it at some of the entrances to the city where thousands of people can see it, possibly on the new police headquarters.’

The scheme could also be used to promote safe drinking messages to revellers on nights out in a move to cut alcohol-related crime in the city centre
