Data collection and handling

The Human Rights Act 1998 and the Data Protection Act 1998 both place considerable responsibility on the Council to exercise care when obtaining and handling data in its possession.


The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 has introduced a number of safeguards and strictly regulates the manner in which the Council can undertake covert surveillance. The Council takes its responsibilities under the legislation very seriously. It has introduced a Guidance and Procedure document which can be found under Links to Further Information opposite.


A number of CCTV cameras are in use within the Borough for the purposes of the prevention and detection of crime, the maintenance of public order, the reduction of anti-social behaviour, including nuisance and vandalism and the enhancement of a sense of safety by the public. The way in which the cameras are used, the manner in which data is collected and the way in which it is disclosed are very carefully controlled. The Council's Policy and Practice document can be found under Links to Further Information opposite.
