West Norfolk Council may take charge of CCTV cameras in neighbouring North Norfolk.
The district council is conducting a review of camera surveillance in its area.
It currently operates 46 cameras in Fakenham, Cromer, North Walsham, Sheringham and Wells.
The service costs nearly £200,000 a year to run.
Deputy leader Rhodri Oliver, said: “The objective of the review was to see what the options could be for the provision of the council’s CCTV operations in the future, alongside identifying potential savings.”
During the course of the review the internal working party, chaired by Fakenham councillor, Annie Claussen-Reynolds, consulted stakeholders, covering town councils, chambers of trade and service users, including the police.
Three possible options for the future, including outsourcing the service to West Norfolk Council, are under consideration.
The other options are continuing an in-house, dedicated service, but with reduced operator hours and using wireless technology or dispensing with the service completely.
The findings of the working party will be deliberated by the council’s overview and scrutinycommittee on September 11. The cabinet will then discuss a final report at its meeting on October 7.
