FOUR Security were appointed to identify, design, and implement a legally compliant, operationally effective and commercially beneficial CCTV system at Marks & Spencer’s major distribution centre in Bradford. M&S wanted an effective and efficient CCTV system that adheres to the Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s code of practice.
Adrian Wilmshurst, Chief Executive comments: “We bring together the key people at an early stage of the design. This means we designed a system that supports Marks and Spencer’s operational delivery and data compliance requirements. Bringing all of the parties together provides a great opportunity to raise everyone’s awareness of the standards and legislation required to operate a CCTV system that is technically compliant and meets CCTV competency standards”.
Nick Russell, Marks & Spencer’s build project manager adds: “Security is always a key concern for us but we also want schemes that are of high compliance standards in terms of legislation and processes. This means we end up with a cost-effective and efficient CCTV system that is value for money”.
Many organisations aren’t aware of their legal responsibilities around the use of CCTV. FOUR Security’s approach is to raise awareness of the surveillance camera code of practice and the 12 guiding principles. We can help give advice to ensure suitable rules, policies and procedures are established to govern and oversee the operation of the CCTV system. Our experience is that a compliant system is also an effective and efficient system.
