It is hoped that this guidance note will assist Local Authorities to gather all CCTV systems under one corporate governance model

Each local authority will be supported by a Data Protection Officer (DPO). It is a matter for senior officials within that local authority to determine the provision of a SPOC in support of the DPO. That is a recommendation made by the Surveillance Camera Commissioner to ensure symmetry and understanding on the management of video surveillance systems.

The establishment of the role of a SPOC within a local authority is the first step in demonstrating to the public that the local authority is committed to operating all surveillance camera equipment in compliance with the SC Code and key legislation such as RIPA, the GDPR and DPA, and Human Rights considerations, thereby building transparency, trust and confidence in its use.
