Work is almost complete on the installation of CCTV cameras in Bomaderry with the installation of microwave links the final step before cameras can be switched on.
Craig Milburn, Council’s Director of Corporate and Community Services said in all there will be 6 cameras in operation in the main street of Bomaderry.
“Work is expected to be complete by the end of May,” said Mr Milburn.
“These cameras were funded by the Commonwealth as part of a crime funding program aimed at being part of a suite of methods aimed at deterring crime.”
“I would also like to remind the community that there are stringent laws regarding the use of CCTV footage and we will be ensuring that we meet those standards.”
- Cameras will be recording information 24 hours a day. All recorded information will be retained for 30 days unless it is required in relation to the investigation of crime, for court proceedings, or to meet other legal obligations. All recorded material will be overwritten on a 30 day cycle.
- Recorded material will not be sold or used for commercial purposes or the provision of entertainment.
- The display of recorded material to the public will only be allowed in accordance with the law enforcement functions of the NSW Police Force where there is a demonstrated overriding public interest for disclosure or in any other circumstances provided by the law. The recorded material can only be released in accordance with the Standard Operating Procedures for the CCTV Project.
- Where display of recorded material occurs, the recognisable characteristics of other people in the footage will be obscured.
- Images from recorded material will not, under any circumstances, be used to publicise the existence or success of the CCTV Project.
- Appropriate security measures will be taken against unauthorised access, alteration disclosure, accidental loss or destruction of recorded material.
- In accordance with the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998 a person has the right to apply for access and/or correction of their personal information. Inquiries in this regard could be made by contacting Council on (02) 4429 3111.
