We have installed CCTV outside our buildings and fire stations for the purposes of public and staff safety, crime prevention and detection. We also use CCTV in some of our fire appliances. In all locations, signs are displayed notifying you that CCTV is in operation and providing details of who to contact for further information about the scheme.
Our lawful basis for processing this information is that it is in our legitimate interests to do so.
We operate CCTV and disclose in accordance with the codes of practice issued by the Information Commissioner and the Home Office.
We only disclose images and audio to other authorised bodies who intend to use it for the purposes stated above. Images and audio will not be released to the media for entertainment purposes or placed on the internet for public viewing.
Images captured by CCTV will not be kept for longer than 28 days. However, on occasions there may be a need to keep images for longer, for example where a crime is being investigated.
You have the right to see CCTV images of yourself and be provided with a copy of the images. Please see here for more information about your rights.
