Underwater CCTV cameras to be installed in Moray swimming pools

Comments Off on Underwater CCTV cameras to be installed in Moray swimming pools

Swimming pools in Moray are set to be fitted with underwater CCTV surveillance cameras as part of the local council’s initiative to improve safety and cut costs, a recent news report in the local media was able to reveal.

Moray Council pointed out that the move would improve safety for people using its pools and also save money at the same time.

The cameras are designed to send high resolution images to a bank of screens at the poolside where they will be monitored by lifeguards. The devices will allow them to keep an eye on underwater activity, even at the bottom of the pools.

However, the cameras will only record the footage in real time and no images will be stored.

The scheme will cost the council about £45,000 to launch, but, on the long-term, it’s expected to save the local authority about £23,000 annually in staff costs as they will reduce the number of relief lifeguards needed at the three pools during busy periods.

As expected, the decision to use the technology has raised questions over the personal privacy of swimmers, a civil liberties group claiming that some swimmers could feel uncomfortable knowing they had cameras trained on them.
