To increase security in the station environment, the NMBS has installed a mobile camera at the back of Zottegem station.
This initiative comes in collaboration with the city and the police and with the cooperation of the Graaf Van Egmont primary school, who was prepared to make its site available for the installation of the device and the provision of the necessary technical connections. From that location, the camera can image the entire bicycle shed at the back of the station. The camera is primarily intended as a preventative measure to discourage vandals or thieves. In addition, the images can also be requested by the local police from the NMBS in order to take repressive action if necessary.
