Use of CCTV in trust vehicles

The request was successful.

Dear North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

Are any trust vehicles currently equipped with CCTV cameras?

If so, can you provide a copy of the policy governing the use, storage and disclosure of captured videos?

For the purposes of this question, 'CCTV' does not need to include "dashcams" that exclusively record traffic, but includes any cameras covering the rest of the vehicle (entrances, cab or patient care area).

Yours faithfully,

Mr M Higgins
