How we manage CCTV records
All information is recorded onto digital hard drives and kept for a maximum of 28 days. During this time the police may apply for access to the images for investigatory purposes.
Photographs obtained from the recorded images are only produced to help identify offenders and are destroyed when no longer required.
How you can request copies of footage
Organisations and agencies, such as insurance companies and solicitors, may apply for access to recorded data.
Release of such data is considered on a request by request basis. There is a fee of at least £100 and this will be calculated based on the data required.
If you want to request CCTV footage in relation to damage to your car or property then please report the incident to your insurance company and/or the police. They will then obtain the relevant footage as per the third parties section above.
If you are an individual who wants to request CCTV footage of yourself, then you should make a Subject Access Request. This costs £10.
Once received, we will review your request and respond to you, either setting out the steps we are going to take to make the date available or the reasons for refusal.
We can charge an extra fee to cover the costs of fulfilling a request.
‘Bird’s Eye View’ newsletter
We publish a quarterly ‘Bird’s Eye View’ newsletter that provides information and statistics on incidents which the CCTV team have been involved with.
