Public space CCTV provision is an effective tool available to local authorities and their partnerships to address crime, anti-social behaviour and improve security. Local authorities as responsible authorities under the provisions of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (and as amended) have a responsibility, not only to develop community safety plans but also to consider the impact of all their policies on crime, anti-social behaviour, substance misuse and reoffending.
Nottingham City Council provides a comprehensive range of services across the public safety spectrum, which include Community Protection enforcement, housing enforcement, licensing and cleansing. The Nottingham Control Centre based at Woodlands in Radford manages the public space cameras of Nottingham City Council. There are 198 public space cameras covering Nottingham City; 164 of these are monitored continuously with operatives in direct communication with Nottinghamshire Police. The remaining 34 require the operator to dial into the camera to view and airtime is used to be able to undertake live viewings.
