Independent CCTV monitoring of English slaughterhouses costs revealed

Comments Off on Independent CCTV monitoring of English slaughterhouses costs revealed

The costs of independent CCTV monitoring across England’s slaughterhouses can vary between £150,000 and £370,000 a year, a report from experts at Sheffield Hallam University has been able to suggest.

The paper – CCTV Monitoring in Slaughterhouses – points out that there are about 260 slaughterhouses in England and the cost of installing a four-camera system with remote viewing and night vision in each one would cost in the region of £700-£900.

Depending on the scale of the operation, annual costs of up to £370,000 would be required to cover employment and training of a workforce to monitor the CCTV, plus any accommodation and data-logging support.

Animal welfare charity Animal Aid, which financed the independent report, said the current system of welfare monitoring in CCTV slaughterhouses was failing and a voluntary welfare system would not be sufficient.

Isobel Hutchinson, head of campaigns at Animal Aid, said: “The case has been decisively made that the current regulatory system is failing animals, and that CCTV – if monitored properly – could deter and detect crimes against vulnerable animals.
