CCTV can be a valuable tool however it doesn’t always prevent crime and it does have limitations.
If you start to use CCTV make sure it’s registered (if you’re a business), operated properly and images are clear enough to be used as police evidence.
You must also make it clear people are being recorded – even at home if your camera covers passers-by.
You can do this by displaying clear and visible signs. We have some already prepared for you, just print them out and place them in your window (see 'Useful information' below).
