Warwick District Council’s CCTV team has been in receipt of a letter of commendation from the Camera Surveillance Commissioner following a recent inspection.
The team who monitor over 190 cameras located throughout the district have continued to operate 24 hours a day 7 days a week during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their yearly audit was amongst the first in the country, which the commissioning body, the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) felt confident in undertaking virtually in light of the fact that all 14 previous inspections had found no areas within the service that were of concern or required improvement.
Having passed all elements of the rigorous inspection with flying colours the Council’s Chief Executive, Chris Elliott received a letter from the Camera Surveillance Commissioner, Tony Porter in which he; “acknowledged the commitment demonstrated in achieving the certification in respect of the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) surveillance camera systems operated by your council.”
Warwick District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Health and Community Protection, Councillor Judy Falp commented:
“I’m extremely proud of the achievements of the CCTV team who have demonstrated their continued commitment to providing the highest standards of service in keeping our streets safe, our car parks secure and assisting the Warwickshire Police under the most challenging of circumstances.”
