CCTV - Data protection and security

CCTV is provided for the benefit of the community - to deter and detect acts of crime and disorder. 

Newark and Sherwood District Council's CCTV system is run in accordance with data protection and human rights legislation and never to the detriment of any individual. The CCTV system is also run in line with a code of practice which is available to download.

All activities and incidents covered within the control room are logged. Access to the control room is restricted and regular visits and inspections of are made by an independent inspector.

To advertise and warn people of CCTV, all areas with cameras have signs  with a contact number in case of complaint or query.

To ensure that no camera can see into a private property, an automatic 'privacy zone' blanks out the images within the windows.

CCTV Code of practice

All CCTV systems should comply with the 12 guiding principles of the surveillance camera code of practice outlined by the Surveillance Camera Commissioner. 

We aim to ensure that we comply with these principles & have completed a self assessment tool in this regard.
