Surveillance commissioner warns against local councils switching off CCTV systems
Comments Off on Surveillance commissioner warns against local councils switching off CCTV systems
The UK’s surveillance camera commissioner has issued a stark warning against the dangers posed by local councils switching off CCTV surveillance systems in a bid to save on cash, a recent news report has revealed.
Tony Porter said switching off cameras would mean the police would find it harder to detect crime. He also argued that budget cuts had led councils to decide to spend less on public space CCTV, meaning there was less money for staff training, poorer understanding of legal issues and a reduced service.
Mr Porter also said that councils could face greater scrutiny of their use of CCTV, including potential inspections and enforcement.
