New CCTV code of practice

CCTV and Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems are subject to a new code of practice from today.

The code is intended to make sure that the systems are used openly and proportionately, while still helping to cut crime.

“This government believes both CCTV and ANPR are both vital tools but it is crucial they are focused on aiding the fight against crime and protecting the public,” said Minister for Criminal Information Lord Taylor of Holbeach. “I am pleased we now have in place a code that, together with the work of the independent surveillance camera commissioner, will better harness these technologies and help put an end to CCTV systems growing without proper oversight.”

Surveillance camera commissioner Andrew Rennison also welcomed the new code, calling it “an important first step.”

“I will be looking for action by the relevant authorities and providing tools that help them and others who are encouraged to adopt the code to be transparent, open and effective in their use of surveillance cameras,” he warned.
