Local authorities invited to surveillance camera workshops

The Surveillance Camera Commissioner has announced that a series of half day workshops on compliance with the surveillance camera code of practice will be held this autumn in a number of locations across England and Wales.

These free workshops are targeted at local authorities and CCTV managers and their managers, compliance officers, data protection officers and community safety managers are all being invited to register for one of these events. As is anyone else who has responsibility for all forms of surveillance including CCTV, body worn video, automatic number plate recognition and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The workshops will look at the importance of the self assessment tool, third party certification, single point of contact and developing registers of all surveillance systems used within local authorities.

A detailed agenda for the events will be available nearer the time.
