We are the voice of 

Public Space Surveillance in the UK



We're Here to help

The CCTV User Group was formed in the mid-1990s to support CCTV Managers to create policy & procedures to manage the use of this emerging new form of evidence.


The original CCTV Code of Practice was developed by Members of the CCTV User Group by those early pioneers of this technology in search of compliance, regulation, image quality standards and the protection of the privacy of the UK public.

We focus on advising an ethical, proportionate and lawful approach to monitoring public spaces using CCTV cameras.

To this day, the group is led by operational CCTV professionals for the benefit of all UK CCTV system managers regardless of how experienced or knowledgeable they may be.  If you need support managing any aspects of your CCTV services, we will be able to guide you in an informative, supportive and non-judgemental way. We realise that all of us have to learn and develop the skills required. Contact us to find out how we can support you.
