Use of CCTV
We have installed CCTV systems in some of our premises used by members of the public for the purposes of public and staff safety and the prevention and detection of crime. CCTV is also installed outside in some of our car parks and on the outside of some of our buildings for the purposes of monitoring building security and crime prevention and detection.
They are also installed in our recycling sites for the purposes of public and staff safety, crime prevention and detection, and the abuse of council policies. In all locations, signs are displayed notifying you that CCTV is in operation and providing details of who to contact for further information about them.
Images captured by CCTV will not be kept for longer than necessary. However, on occasions there may be a need to keep images for a longer period, for example where a crime is being investigated.
We will only disclose CCTV images to third parties for the purposes stated above. CCTV images will not be released to the media, used for entertainment purposes or placed on the internet.
You have the right to see CCTV images of yourself and be provided with a copy. Please see Your information rights for information about how to make a request.
We operate CCTV and disclose in accordance with the codes of practice issued by the Information Commissioner and the Surveillance Camera Commissioner.
