Community ANPR Cameras

Our CCTV and ANPR Systems

We operate an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera system, which includes real time traffic monitoring, to record details of vehicles using public roads in order to help prevent crime, to assist the police with any enquiries and to provide evidence.

This processing is lawful and necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party.

Who we share your information with

We may disclose ANPR data in response to requests from the police and other statutory law enforcement agencies.

We do not share or sell ANPR information with any other organisation.

The Data Protection Act 2018 allows disclosure of CCTV and ANPR data to the police.

We deal with each request with on a case-by-case basis. This is to ensure that any such disclosure is lawful and in accordance to the Data Protection Act 2018.

How we look after your ANPR data

We hold the data for 31 days at most on the ANPR device.

If we extract data, we will securely store it on an external hard drive only for as long as the police require and/or share it securely with the police.

Only designated individuals will have access to ANPR data held by us, and only for the purposes outlined in this privacy policy.
