Closed circuit television (CCTV)

How is it used?

We use CCTV to help promote community safety in town centres and other public areas.  It is also installed in many of our buildings for management and security purposes.

There are currently 106 public space cameras and 1580 security cameras in use throughout South Lanarkshire all of which are operated in accordance with the 1998 Data Protection Act.

We have a Code of Practice for the management and operation of both our public space and security CCTV systems.
