Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,
Could you please inform me how many of the agency staff employed in the CCTV control room have access to use the cctv playback system too produce cctv discs for Merseyside Police and other agencies?

Yours faithfully,

Michael Edwards

InfoMgr, FinDMT, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council

Good Morning

 

Thank you for your request, Wirral Council can confirm the agency staff
have not been trained in use of the CCTV playback system and would
therefore not have access to the images.  As these staff are not
monitoring CCTV and do not hold SIA Licenses.

 

Kind regards

Dear InfoMgr, FinDMT,
Thank you for your reply but could you be a bit more precise with your answer, what title do these Wirral council staff members hold?

Yours sincerely,

Michael Edwards

InfoMgr, FinDMT, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council

Good Morning

Wirral Council thanks you for your clarification request, Wirral Council is unable to disclose this information as the Council believes that disclosure of the information could lead to the identification of living individuals. This is also having regard to information we have previously released under FOI and therefore potential further identification.

The Council has relied on section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the Council can place reliance on this section when disclosure of the information requested may breach The Data Protection Act 1998.


The legislation specifies that Data Controllers, such as the Council, have to comply with the 8 Data Protection principles.
The first principle, which is set out in Schedule 1 of the Act stats that a Personal Data may only be processed where it is fair and lawful to do so and where one of the conditions set out in Schedule 2 are satisfied. I do not believe that any of the conditions in Schedule 2 are met.

To advise you further I have detailed Schedule 2 below:-

SCHEDULE 2- CONDITIONS RELEVANT FOR PURPOSES OF THE FIRST PRINCIPLE:
PROCESSING OF ANY PERSONAL DATA

1. The data subject has given his consent to the processing.

2. The processing is necessary-

(a) for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, or
(b) for the taking of steps at the request of the data subject with a view to entering into a contract.

3. The processing is necessary for compliance with any legal obligation to which the data controller is subject, other than an obligation imposed by contract.

4. The processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject.

5. The processing is necessary-

(a) for the administration of justice,

(b) for the exercise of any functions conferred on any person by or under any enactment,

(c) for the exercise of any functions of the Crown, a Minister of the Crown or a government department, or

(d) for the exercise of any other functions of a public nature exercised in the public interest by any person.

6. - (1) The processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by the data controller or by the third party or parties to whom the data are disclosed, except where the processing is unwarranted in any particular case by reason of prejudice to the rights and freedoms or legitimate interests of the data subject.

You have the right under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to ask for an internal review of the refusal to supply some of the information requested. Please direct any request for an internal review to [email address]


You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner, if you are dissatisfied with the outcome of any internal review
