Auckland’s Project to Improve Video Surveillance in Public Spaces
Auckland Council is working alongside NZ Police, representatives of the NZ security industry, the Office of Privacy Commissioner, business sector, and other project stakeholders, to create the conditions where video surveillance supports the safety of Auckland’s public spaces, and is:
● Deployed proportionately & transparently in partnerships for justified and legitimate means
● Fit for purpose
● Used appropriately and efficiently
● Cost-effective and makes a difference
To do so, the project aims to establish a future strategic approach to video surveillance across Auckland that is supported by a framework of standards and current best practice that meets the needs and interests of all stakeholders, users, owners and operators of CCTV.
The ‘Guide to Camera Surveillance Systems in Public Places’ have been established by the project and adopted by the Council. They are a first step towards defining a code of practice for Auckland, and are being piloted and refined over the coming year. Gillian Stewart, the council’s project manager welcomes ideas to improve these guidelines. Contact her at CCTVProject@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz New policy of the Council will be developed in mid-2014 that will encourage compliance with these Guidelines.
