Testimonials are the best recommendation

"I am a part-time volunteer director of a company that runs a private road in London.  The Directors are all volunteers and residents of the road and not in any way experts in CCTV installation and operation.  When it was decided by the residents to install CCTV in the street, we were advised by the company we chose to join the CCTV User Group.  What an excellent piece of advice that turned out to be.   We have called on them numerous times to help us with advice on compliance and technical issues as well as the day to day processes we will need when the system is fully up and running.  they are knowledgeable, responsive,  explain things in clear language and are always a pleasure to deal with.

 

I recommend that anyone who is running a CCTV system or about to install one to consider joining the CCTV User Group so that they too have access to this wealth of information and advice."

What's the difference between the CCTV User Group and NASCAM


Membership of the CCTV User Group is reserved for CCTV and Public Safety professionals from any local authority (LA), police or government agency (together with agencies such as British Transport Police, City of London Police, TfL, Network Rail etc.) together with any organisation that either provides products or services to, or manufactures products for, the CCTV industry.

NASCAM has been developed to be able to advise anyone wishing to further their knowledge and understanding of CCTV within the UK. This includes all the sectors shown on the website on our About Us page (scroll down to see the Sectors We Support)




What business sectors do you support people to understand CCTV?


Historically, the CCTV User Group has supported local government and law enforcement users of CCTV. However, with the introduction of the Biometrics & Surveillance Camera Commissioner's Code of Practice we now need to support a larger group of users to operate surveillance in a compliant manner.

The possible CCTV support sectors are:

  1. Public space and the night-time economy (pubs, clubs, bars, restaurants etc.)
  2. Public health, clinics, beauticians, spa's, dentists etc.
  3. Traffic & highways monitoring and enforcement
  4. Utilities (gas, water, electricity, cable and telecoms providers)
  5. Bed & breakfast, hotels, resorts
  6. Commercial landlords, housing associations and commercial trading estate managers
  7. Car parking & parking enforcement
  8. Users of Body Worn Video (BWV)
  9. National landmarks and Critical National Infrastructure
  10. Sports centres, football grounds, leisure centres, gyms etc.




You require asistance to become a Voluntary Adopter of the SCC Code of Practice?


Great news, how can we help? It is our mission to support as many organisations as possible to voluntarily adopt the Surveillance Camera Commissioner's CCTV Camera Code of Practice. We also believe that before long, many more sectors who use government funding to install & operate CCTV systems will be legally required to become fully compliant particularly in the light of recent data breaches, the Facebook / Cambridge Analytica scandal and rising demands from the public for greater protection of their privacy.
