This policy governs the operation of the closed circuit television (CCTV) systems operated by Brighton & Hove City Council as a data controller to assist it in carrying out its enforcement, public safety and other functions.
The policy sets out the principles to be observed by the Council, its members, employees, contractors, and any other parties or organisations involved in the operation, management and administration of relevant CCTV systems, as well as the hierarchy of responsibilities which exist to ensure that these systems are operated in a compliant manner.
However it is also intended to inform members of the public of the purposes for which CCTV is operated, and of the standards which will be met in relation to it. In this way, the Council can be held accountable for its compliance with the policy.
