Introduction

The West Lindsey CCTV and Monitoring Service provides monitored CCTV for the benefit of the wider public, partner agencies and customers. We use the latest in CCTV technology to deliver high quality surveillance that keeps people, property and assets safe.

Our Control Centre monitors and records all footage from our camera network. With direct communication links to the police and other agencies we use camera footage to prevent and detect incidents of crime, public disorder, anti-social behaviour, theft and more.

All of our systems are operated by fully trained and security vetted operators. They actively search for potential incidents and work with partners to prevent crime and create safety.

We work closely with partners and customers to provide excellent customer service whilst creating safety.

CCTV Code of Practice

To ensure our service is fully accountable we operate in accordance with a CCTV Code of Practice. This Code details how the service is managed, operates on a day to day basis and protects access to information. We take data protection and personal privacy very seriously. It is vital we have strong mechanisms in place for public protection so that people can have trust in the use of CCTV.

Requesting CCTV footage

You have the right to get a copy of the information that is held about you. This includes CCTV footage of you in public spaces. Footage can sometimes be required for civil investigations or claims. Certain restrictions do apply and CCTV footage will not be released if it infringes another person’s privacy rights or impacts on a criminal investigation.

To request CCTV footage you must complete a Subject Access Request. Please contact us for further information about this process.
