In October 2017 an Extraordinary General Meeting of Aberdeen Park Maintenance Company (APMC) voted in favour of installing a CCTV system in Aberdeen Park.
The installation of the cameras, other equipment and signs alerting people to the presence of CCTV has now been completed and will be operational from the beginning of October 2018.
The purpose of the CCTV is to secure the safety and well-being of residents and visitors by acting as a deterrent to crime and by recording activities within Aberdeen Park to identify criminal activity.
The CCTV system will be administered in accordance with the law and in accordance with the APMC CCTV policy (the full policy is available using the link at the bottom of this page) and materials or knowledge secured as a result of CCTV will not be used for any commercial or entertainment purposes.
There will be full camera coverage of the road and pavements of Aberdeen Park, but cameras will not focus on private homes or gardens: private property will be obscured from any recording. Recording will take place 24 hours a day but whilst the system is designed to ensure maximum effectiveness and efficiency, it is not possible to guarantee that the system will cover or detect every single incident taking place within the area covered. Please note that there is no live monitoring of the recorded footage and images are only stored for 30 days from the date of recording.
Warning signs or notices have been placed at all access routes into AP in accordance with the Code of Practice of the Information Commissioner.
A Privacy Impact Assessment was carried out and a copy of this can be requested by email from the Company Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
Release of images will be strictly controlled in accordance with the APMC CCTV policy mentioned above. If you wish to make a request for images to be made available to you, you must complete and submit the request form using the link at the foot of this page. A hard copy of the form will also be available from the APMC administrator during the usual office hours (Tuesdays from 6.30 to 7.30pm at the Highbury Centre) or by sending an email request to email@example.com
APMC is registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and will seek to comply with the requirements of the DPA and the Commissioner’s Code of Practice.
APMC will treat the system and all information, documents, and recordings obtained and used as data which is protected by the DPA.
