Custody CCTV Procedure
This procedure is intended to provide a corporate framework for the use of closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems within North Yorkshire Police (NYP) custody premises. All other internal and external CCTV cameras on NYP premises are the responsibility of Area Business Managers.
The systems in custody provide a capability to visually monitor and record movement, actions and events throughout the custody area and provide audio recordings within specified areas.
The benefits of the use of CCTV in custody areas are to:
- bring transparency to the functioning of the custody area
- allow close monitoring of vulnerable detainees, enhancing the capability to care for them appropriately
- provide evidential data, where appropriate
Adherence to this procedure will ensure the integrity of the process of recording, accessing, and storing data.Last modified: February 1, 2021 [application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document]
