Body-worn CCTV cameras

Body-worn camera

Our public realm enforcement officers and dog wardens use body-worn CCTV cameras while working.

The key objectives of the CCTV cameras are:

  • to protect members of staff and the public. 
  • to discourage physical assaults, aggressive or abusive behaviour against staff.
  • to deter and detect crime and anti-social behaviour.
  • to assist in the identification of offenders leading to their arrest and successful prosecution.
  • to reduce staff’s fear of crime or aggressive or violent behaviour.
  • to provide evidence in cases of alleged illegal activity or in disciplinary offences. This may amount to misconduct by members of staff.
  • to promote officer compliance with council policies and procedures.
  • to help investigate breaches in Health and Safety incidents, investigate formal complaints or to resolve grievances.

The decision to implement the use of body-worn CCTV cameras was made at the Strategy and Resource Committee on 10 October 2016.

Any questions about body-worn CCTV cameras and their usage can be directed to Wendy Young, Operations Manager at wendy.young@cambridge.gov.uk.
