CCTV is closed circuit television. There are many security cameras situated both on streets and in car parks throughout the borough.
These operate by producing video images which are then transmitted to a central CCTV control room where they are monitored and recorded 24 hours a day. Recorded image are held for 28 days. If there is no legitimate reason to keep the recording then the tapes are erased and reused.
A Code of Practice exists for the operation of the CCTV system and the scheme works closely with the Police.
