CCTV Surveillance Privacy Notice

Last updated: Thursday, 9 August 2018
Please note: the following notice provides additional privacy information to the Rochdale Borough Council privacy notice.

Closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems are installed in some of our locations used by members of the public for the purposes of public and staff safety as well as crime prevention and detection. CCTV images will only be disclosed to other organisations who intend to use the images for these purposes. In all locations, signs are displayed notifying you that CCTV is in operation and providing details of who to contact for further information.

Body Worn Videos (BWV) incorporating audio recordings are being used by civil parking enforcement officers and other council officers when necessary for operational purposes. The aim of the BWV technology is to:

  • Promote the safety of the officers
  • Reduce the potential number of confrontational situations experienced by officers
  • Reduce potential escalation of incidents
  • Complaint resolution

We operate CCTV surveillance and disclose it in accordance with the codes of practice issued by the Information Commissioner and the Home Office.

Images captured by CCTV surveillance will not be kept for longer than is necessary. However, on occasions there may be a need to keep images for longer, for example where a crime is being investigated.
