Home office CCTV strategy a welcome step for the BSIA.

British Security Industry Association (BSIA) : 22 October, 2007  (Technical Article)
Home Office strategy for CCTV seen by BSIA as a step forward for public safety in the UK
The British Security Industry Association has welcomed the Home Office's new CCTV Strategy as a significant step forward in a holistic approach to the specification, deployment and governance of CCTV technology in the UK.

Pauline Norstrom, BSIA CCTV Section Chairman, comments: 'The plans laid down by the strategy will bring major benefits to public safety and lead to the effective reduction of crime. CCTV technology is now very much part of our everyday lives and it is essential that its potential is maximised for the benefit of all.'

'The BSIA has long believed that all the key stakeholders have a part to play in the effective deployment of CCTV across both the public and private sectors. The CCTV industry is playing a vital role through BSIA's involvement in the National Strategy Programme Board. We have also been working closely for some time with the Home Office Scientific Development Branch on a number of common issues.'

'The implementation of high standards is imperative to ensuring the effective use of CCTV. Consequently, the Association has been heavily involved for some years in developing standards and codes of practice on Digital Video evidence; remotely-monitored, detector-activated CCTV; privacy masking; the use of CCTV with Chip and PIN; and data protection, amongst other issues. These documents form the cornerstone of all proposed standards and guidelines in the UK.'

'The BSIA will continue to work proactively as part of the National Strategy Programme Board to ensure the continued successful contribution of CCTV to public safety and crime prevention and detection in this country.'
