CCTV

We do not have a monitored CCTV (closed circuit television) network or any cameras not on council land.

There are eight council sites which have CCTV. Most of the cameras are fixed focus and look at set points. They record in full colour 24/7.

Recordings are not monitored and are not reviewed unless there is a justifiable reason. Normally recordings are kept between 14 days and 31 days. Images for ongoing investigations are held until the investigations are completed.

We take people’s right to privacy seriously and ensure our cameras do not unnecessarily impact on people’s privacy.
