    A Centralised information resource 'The Security Directory' provides a centralised source of security related products & services for members of the CCTV User Group and others interested in locating the very best products & services.

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