Location of CCTV Cameras

Simon Whitehouse made this Freedom of Information request to Birmingham City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Birmingham City Council,

I am interested in local authority owned and operated CCTV cameras.

For each CCTV camera that is owned and/or operated by Birmingham City Council I would like the following data

Location – Responsible Directorate - Responsible department – whether it is currently operational

I would like this to be in a format that can be re-used, preferably comma separated variable (csv) format.

Once this request has been completed I would like you to add the resulting dataset to the city's publication scheme, and keep it up-to-date in the future.

Thank you in advance. I'm very happy to discuss and assist in the successful publication of the data I am requesting.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Whitehouse

Teresa E Evans, Birmingham City Council

Dear Mr Whitehouse,

I am writing in respect of your recent enquiry for information held by the
Authority under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please find herewith the following:

 

Request:
I am interested in local authority owned and operated CCTV cameras.

For each CCTV camera that is owned and/or operated by Birmingham City
Council I would like the following data

is currently operational

I would like this to be in a format that can be re-used, preferably comma

Response:

Please see the attached spread sheet providing the location of each CCTV
camera owned and/or operated by Birmingham City Council.

The responsible Directorate is the Place Directorate, Highways including
the Birmingham Community Safety Partnership is the Department and all
cameras are operational.

I can confirm that it is intended, later this year, to have a CCTV website
where a full listing of cameras will be available.

Whilst we have undertaken a thorough search of the information held by
Birmingham City Council, it may be that, due to the size and amount of
information held by Birmingham City Council, some information may have
been inadvertently missed.

If you have any information which may assist us in determining or locating
any missed information, we would be grateful if you would contact us with
details of this information, so that we can conduct a further search.

If you are not satisfied with the response you may ask for an internal
review. Please contact the corporate team at the address below:

or

If subsequently you are not satisfied with the Council’s decision you may
apply to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the ICO
cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the complaints procedure
provided by the Council. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at
the following address:
