    The Group uses closed circuit television (CCTV) to:

    • help reduce the fear of crime for service users and employees, particularly for those entering and leaving premises during the hours of darkness;
    • assist in the prevention and detection of crime against persons and property;
    • facilitate the identification, apprehension and prosecution of offenders in relation to crime.

    The Group will adhere to the following principles:

    • cameras will not be hidden from view;
    • signage will inform the public and employees of the presence, purpose and ownership of the CCTV system;
    • cameras will be positioned to avoid impinging on the privacy of individuals not visiting the premises and not involved in unlawful activity;
    • the systems will not be subject to live monitoring or control, except at Miles Platting where staff or contractors monitor building access;
    • images will be retained for a maximum period of 30 days and only viewed if an incident comes to light;
    • recorded images will be secured safely and only viewed by authorised persons.

    The Group will make available CCTV footage when requested (on DVD or other suitable means) to:

    • law enforcement agencies, where it is believed that the images will assist in a legal enquiry;
    • prosecuting agencies;
    • legal representatives;
    • the media, where a decision has been made by the police that the footage is needed to assist in identification of the perpetrator of a criminal incident (the wishes of the victim will be taken into account);
    • fulfill the requirements of a subject access request by an individual, including employees.

    The Group’s CCTV installations include a number of workplace locations. Where images captured on CCTV supports allegations or reveals evidence of gross misconduct, the Group reserves the right to use these images in bringing a disciplinary case against an employee for gross misconduct.
