Global MSC Security has revealed that the Surveillance Camera Commissioner (SCC) for England and Wales, Tony Porter MSyl, will present ‘Delivering the National Surveillance Camera Strategy’, at the 20th annual Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition 2018, which is taking place at the Bristol Hotel in Bristol city centre on Tuesday 13th November 2018. Mr Porter will use his keynote address to highlight the successes and challenges since implementing the strategy.
It has been said that Britain has more surveillance cameras than any other country in the world. This proliferation of CCTV cameras led the government to establish a surveillance camera commissioner responsible for overseeing their governance – the only country in the world to do so. In another first, the commissioner has now released a national strategy for England and Wales to set out how CCTV should be operated and to ensure that cameras are used in the public interest.
