CCTV operators in Warwick district praised

CCTV operators in Warwick district have been commended by a regulating body.

The district council team was recognised by the the Surveillance Camera Commissioner for accurately complying with the ‘Surveillance Camera Code of Practice’ under the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.

The certificate of compliance received by the council assures the public CCTV cameras across the district are being operated ethically and legitimately to an appropriate standard.

The council’s CCTV scheme operates 24/7, all year round, year, to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and public disorder.

The team also operates a number of emergency help points and supporting vulnerable people by alerting authorities and monitoring their welfare until they are attended to.

Warwick District Council’s spokeswoman for community protection Judy Falp said: “I am so pleased to confirm that the council has once again been commended for its high standards of CCTV operation, and my thanks go to the team who work round the clock to keep us all safe.

“This past year has been particularly challenging but they have continued to provide a first class service, especially recently as businesses have opened up and people have returned to our town centres.

“Our residents can rest easy knowing that we are there 24/7, monitoring the district to keep us all safe.”

The council’s CCTV team can be followed on Twitter @WDC_CCTV, for updates and insights into its day-to-day operation.
