Frequently Asked Questions

I have installed a CCTV cameras on my property can I use it to monitor my car which is parked on the public highway?
The Date Protection Act contains an exemption for domestic use, however a householder who has a camera on their property for their own personal use would not be covered by DPA

How would I know if the  CCTV camera is working?
All the public open spaces cameras are fully functional and recording.  In the event a cameras breaks down and the images are not being relayed to CCSU the camera is either bagged or taken down until it is repaired.

Can I come to the Control Room and view CCTV recordings?
No.  Members of the public cannot be admitted into the control room to view images.  If you have been involved in an incident and you believe CCTV may be of assistance ask the Police, your solicitor or your insurance company to contact us.   You may apply for a ‘Subject Access Request.  There is a fee of £10. Images supplied will be of  the requesting individual only.

How long do you keep CCTV recordings for?
The recorded data is kept for 28 days and is then electronically deleted.

There has recently been a spate of anti-social behaviour in my area and I believe a CCTV camera would help.  Will the Council install one?
The Council has no plans to install any additional  fixed  pubic open space cameras however there are  a small number of mobile cameras that can be temporarily sited.  The decisions about siting these cameras rests with the Neighbourhood Policing Team.  You will need to attend a meeting or contact  PC Sam Beaumont of the Neighbourhood Policing Team for South Wales Police.
