Surveillance Camera Commissioner launches fresh consultation into national surveillance camera strategy
Comments Off on Surveillance Camera Commissioner launches fresh consultation into national surveillance camera strategy
The future of CCTV surveillance across England and Wales could change as the Surveillance Camera Commissioner has recently launched a consultation on a draft national surveillance camera strategy.
The strategy aims to provide direction and leadership in the surveillance camera community to enable system operators to understand best practice and their legal obligations (such as those contained within the Data Protection Act and the Private Security Industry Act). It also aims to enable the surveillance camera community to demonstrate compliance with the principles of the surveillance camera code of practice and other guidance.
The commissioner’s strategic vision is to assure the public that surveillance cameras in public places are there to keep and make them feel safe, and that those cameras are deployed and used responsibly, as well as transparently, in a manner which is proportionate to their legitimate purpose.
Surveillance Camera Commissioner Tony Porter said:
“This draft strategy has been 10 months in development – I’ve been working with a group of industry experts to get it into shape and now we are ready to consult on it. I welcome views from anyone whether they are an expert in the industry or a member of the public – the strategy is designed to benefit them – so their input will be invaluable to making sure it meets their needs when we begin work on delivering its objectives in 2017.”
