CCTV in Bridgend County Borough

We operate cameras across the county borough which record at 12.5 frames per second. We run CCTV to:

  • deter and detect crime
  • identify offenders for arrest and prosecution
  • reduce anti-social behaviour
  • reduce the fear of crime
  • keep and grow the business success of our town centres and wider community.

Access CCTV footage for legal matters

You are entitled to make a ‘data subject access request’ under Part 3, Chapter 3 of the GDPR Data Protection Act 2018. Images supplied will be of the requesting individual only.

If footage could help with a legal matter, ask the police, your solicitor or your insurance company to contact us for it. The public are not allowed into the control room to view images.

Frequently Asked Questions

We have no plans to install any more fixed, public open space cameras. However we have a small number of mobile cameras which can be temporarily sited. Decisions about siting these cameras rests with the Bridgend Community Safety Partnership in response to high levels of reported anti-social behaviour.  For more information please contact

All cameras in open public spaces are fully functional and recording. If a camera breaks, the camera is either bagged or removed until it is repaired.

The Data Protection Act doesn’t apply to householders with cameras on their properties for personal use. Thus cameras on your home can monitor public highways, as when someone puts CCTV on their house to monitor their car on a council road.
