Eboracum UK Ltd is the first Private Security firm to achieve surveillance camera code of practice accreditation.
The code of practice, issued by the UK Secretary of state is intended to ensure that individuals and wider communities have confidence that public body surveillance cameras are deployed to protect and support them, rather than spy on them.
Eboracum’s procedures, privacy impact assessment and processes were audited by the SSAIB (Security Systems and Alarms Inspection board) who in turn recommended certification to the Surveillance Camera Commissioner.
The audit was based on the companies use of Body Worn CCTV cameras. Body Worn CCTV is across the business for a number of reasons. It helps to reduce conflict, demonstrate transparency, prevent false allegations and can be used as evidence in a court of law.
Carl Nickson, Director of Eboracum UK said
Although accreditation is voluntary, I feel that it is important to demonstrate a transparent and compliant approach to the use of CCTV. We are leading from the front as the first Security Company to achieve this accolade and I hope that others will follow. Achieving this accreditation outlines that even small-medium businesses can put privacy, compliance and transparency high on the agenda.
Eboracum UK has taken steps to ensure that their Body worn CCTV systems operate within a legal framework and meet the standards of the Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s code of practice.
The company has published their policy and privacy impact assessment online. Please use the buttons below to download the relevant documents.
