CCTV Code of Practice
This code of practice replaces one first issued in 2000. Since then there have been advances in the way CCTV is used, the technology employed and the wider legal environment in which it operates. There have also been developments which may help achieve more privacy friendly ways of using CCTV. This revised code builds upon the previous guidance reflecting these changes and the lessons learnt of how it is used in practice.
