A north-east town is set to get a CCTV system costing £79,000.
Peterhead BID (Business Improvement District) was awarded the funding from Aberdeenshire Council.
Earlier this year, Peterhead businessman and Rediscover Peterhead board member Gilbert Burnett handed the council a petition of more than 800 signatures calling for CCTV in the town.
Mr Burnett said that, while the town wanted to see a greater police presence, he added “the public feel that CCTV will help achieve that”.
