The CCTV User Group welcomes Oliver Martin as new Honorary Chairman

Oliver Martin, Public Space Surveillance Manager, London Borough of Hackney

We are delighted to announce that Oliver Martin has agreed to assume the role and responsibilities of Honorary Chairman of the CCTV User Group.

Honorary Chairman is a role that is offered to someone who has made an outstanding contribution to best practice and raising standards in the management of public space surveillance.

Oliver Martin is Public Space Surveillance Manager in the London Borough of Hackney Civil Protection Service and has a wealth of experience in public space CCTV. He has managed surveillance systems in two of London’s busiest boroughs, has been the chair for the past four years of the London CCTV Managers Group (LCMG), and has worked closely with the Metropolitan Police at a high level.

Oliver is an accomplished speaker and communicator who can talk authoritatively about the operation of public space surveillance systems. He has consistently won high marks from the delegates at our annual conferences for his clear and entertaining speaking style.

As Honorary Chairman, he will be sharing this experience with his peers and promoting the aims of the CCTV User Group to promote best practice and raise standards in public space surveillance.

Peter Webster, Director of the CCTV User Group, said: “I am absolutely delighted that Oliver has accepted our invitation to become Honorary Chairman of the CCTV User Group. He has always been a great supporter of the Group and has presented many times at our conferences, sharing his experience and expertise with our Members. We are looking forward to working with him as we prepare to meet once again at our first face-to-face conference since the start of the pandemic.”

Oliver said: “I’m delighted to have been asked by the CCTV User Group to become Honorary Chairman. I’ve been a member for many years and had the pleasure of attending and speaking at many of our annual conferences. I have found the Group to be an invaluable source of information and advice from other professional surveillance system managers, and I look forward to working with Peter and the rest of the Group to continue to promote best practice and high standards in the design, commissioning and operations of surveillance camera systems.”

Oliver will support and assist new Members to get the most out of their membership, promote voluntary adoption of the government’s Surveillance Camera Code of Practice and lead the CCTV User Group Conference in April 2022, the first time the group will have met face-to-face in more than two years.

Oliver will also be joining us for a Snapshot Webinar on 25 November. Details to follow on our events page.
