The funding was announced by the office of police and crime commissioner (PCC) Donna Jones (Con), which said it was part of a £1m cash injection for projects in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight “to keep streets safe”.

It was from the fifth round of the government’s Safer Streets Fund which allocated £42m on 413 projects across England and Wales.

In Southampton, two cameras are also to be installed on Shirley Road.

Meanwhile PPC Donna Jones, who faces re-election next year, is also urging residents to share their views on local police funding.

She said: “This survey aims to gather your views on whether there should be an increase in the level of council tax which you pay in support of policing, to ensure continued investment in Hampshire and Isle of Wight Constabulary.”
