Closed Circuit Television (CCTV)

We are responsible for monitoring town centres, shopping centres and residential areas using closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras to aid the prevention and detection of crime.

Our trained officers monitor all CCTV to create a safe and secure environment for all members of the public who live, work and visit the borough. 

Request CCTV footage

If you want to find out what information, if any, is held about you on CCTV you can apply to request any footage by completing a form. It is usually requested to help resolve insurance claims in road traffic accidents.

Disclosure to the general public

The showing of recorded data to the public will only be permitted in accordance with the CCTV Code of Practice and the provision of the General Data Protection Regulation 2018.

It is recommended that a written application in an approved format, clearly showing the reason(s) for the request, is used otherwise delay in responding may be encountered if insufficient information is provided.

A charge not exceeding the prescribed maximum is payable for each request to view recorded images.
