CCTV evidence

Closed circuit television

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is one of the most powerful tools to assist with combating crime and disorder whilst enhancing community safety.

It may be regarded by some as an infringement of people's liberty. CCTV systems must be used in a manner which stands up to scrutiny and is accountable to the very people they are aiming to protect.

We believe that everyone has the right to respect for his or her private and family life. Although the use of CCTV cameras has become widely accepted in the UK as an effective security tool, some people express concern over the handling of the information (data) which the system gathers.

With this in mind, we have adopted a nationally recommended standard.

All requests for the release of data shall be channelled through the data controller or his nominated representative.
