CCTV policy for Cape Town

Extract from the article

Grant Haskin, of the ACDP, said the policy needed to also look at ways of monitoring and regulating the CCTV footage collected.

“There are no mechanisms to prevent the camera operators (those who mo:nitor live footage) from abusing them for non-policing purposes.” Haskin said he had asked the safety and security portfolio committee to make provision for this in the policy.

There were also no reporting or monitoring mechanisms for private sector camera operators, he said.

“There are more private sector-operated cameras in Cape Town than state-owned.”
