Local Authority workshops announced

Half day workshops to support compliance with the surveillance camera code of practice.

The Surveillance Camera Commissioner is delighted to announce 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 we invite CCTV managers and their managers, compliance officers, data protection officers, community safety managers and officers to register for one of these events. As well as any one else who has responsibility for all forms of surveillance including CCTV, body worn video, automatic number plate recognition and unmanned aerial vehicles.

We will be looking 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.

This will be a great opportunity to meet the commissioner and ask him any questions you may have on complying with the code.

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