The Community Communications Network (CCN) now part of the CAN media empire will be exhibiting its community television system at the Safer London Problem Solving Awards on 23 February 2009.

The Problem Solving Awards celebrate projects designed and implemented by local police and the communities they serve which respond to local needs, addressing the causes and consequences of crime.

CCN works closely with the Home Office and gives police services, local authorities and government partnerships the opportunity to communicate key social messages directly to the heart of local communities.

Public service information, emergency broadcasts and local alerts are broadcast to CCN screens, which are strategically placed in public spaces where people carry out their daily lives. These include educational and health establishments, council and police buildings, supermarkets, fast food outlets and sports, shopping and entertainment complexes.

CCN operates in over 20 local authority areas, making the network the largest of its kind in the UK.
