A Pontypridd police officer will be the first to trial a new high-tech crime fighting initiative - using hand-held CCTV equipment to tackle crime in the town centre.

The officer will use the CCTV along with other state-of-the-art gadgets as part of efforts to reduce anti-social behaviour over the festive season.
