The Council has joined forces with the Richmond Borough Police to provide a number of CCTV cameras in the Borough, which are used to view and monitor activity in public spaces.
The scheme is not to be used to invade the privacy of any individual in residential, business, or other private premises, buildings or land.
We have made every effort in the planning and design of the CCTV system to give it maximum effectiveness. However, it's not possible to guarantee that the system will record every single incident taking place in the areas of coverage.
The scheme makes specific arrangements for the provision of recordings for evidential purposes to the police.
The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames also adheres to the principles contained in the CCTV Code of Practice published by the Information Commisioners Office.
