Dear Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council,

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

For each CCTV camera that is owned and/or operated by Sandwell 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 authority'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

Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Simon,

 

Ref: FOI enquiry 663121388

 

Please find attached the requested file that details the CCTV cameras
owned and operated by Sandwell council. Our council is undergoing huge
change at the moment that means this register may alter with the
re-organisation of council assets, relocation of staff etc so this request
has prompted a further piece of work to identify any changes in the near
future that will change or affect the list of cameras. This will mainly
affect CCTV systems located in workplaces or council buildings and updates
will be made taking into account these changes and the list will be
detailed in our code of practice and placed on the council website.

 

Please see the link below that has details of our current code of practice
[to be updated as above] there is some information contained therein that
will advise you as to how Sandwell council manages its CCTV provision.

Please note that all of our cameras are maintained on an ongoing basis and
although they may suffer from faults on occasion maintenance
contracts/agreements are in place ensuring they are repaired within agreed
timescales. We currently have no cameras that are permanently disabled or
broken so for the purpose of this report I can report all of our systems
as being operational.

 

I hope this fulfils your request but if you are dissatisfied with the
handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an internal
review. Internal review requests should be submitted within two months of
the date of receipt of the response to your request and should be
addressed to;

 

            Information management Unit

            Oldbury Council House

            Oldbury

West Midlands

B69 3DE

 

E-mail  - [2][Sandwell Council request email]

 

If you are not content with the outcome of an internal review you have the
right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision.
The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

 

            Information Commissioners’ Office

            Wycliffe House

            Water Lane

            Wilmslow
