The Surveillance Camera Code of Practice and how we comply with it
We assess our use of each surveillance camera system according to the information management requirements in the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice, which provides guidance on the appropriate and effective use of surveillance cameras in England and Wales.
The code is based on 12 guiding principles that strike a balance between protecting the public and upholding civil liberties.
We've carried out a Surveillance Camera Code of Practice Self-Assessment, which makes sure we comply with these 12 guiding principles and we review each category of camera every year.
