Power Cut - Prowlers
- Paul (16th Sep 2020 08:03:52)

I happened to look out the window during this morning's power cut, and in the dark I could just make out a person 'taking an interest' in cars along Canada Way ….

Approx. 5.20am I think. Just goes to show - some people might be taking their opportunity while alarms and street lights have glitched.

Always worth making certain that your property is secured, and no valuables left on display in cars.

There is a number of opportunists that operate between 3-5am "typically" nearby, I suppose the last hit has worn off then and they need to steal something to pay for the next day, there is a few grainy images knocking around like the couple whom stole from a parked taxi mans car a few years ago.
There are plenty of home CCTV offerings avail online some pricey and many also quiet cheap yet effective like the Neo smart cams (other are avail am sure) for £30 and no subscription you can have a decent image quality and phone alerts with short recordings etc.
What am saying is am pretty sure with the spread of this sort of tech and the co operation of neighbors when an incident happens (this individual walked past our house 4 door up from crime at time of crime) you can see anyone do anything at any time in great detail on your property for less that the price of maccy d's for the family.
Cue "Are you legally allowed to do that" to which the answer is yes, your legally allowed to CCTV your own property and even over public areas, your just not allowed to CCTV private property that isnt your own or you dont have that owners consent to do so.
Buy something for £30, point it at your stuff, wake up in the morning to find a problem, check your phone, email the high def clip of the person doing it off to the police... job done!
Hasnt anyone wondered why the idiots are the skatepark moved there misbehavior down to the seating next to the library under the trees? for loads of them got nicked :) either by the police or by mummy viewing the evidence and it wont be long before the new library of images of those in the position next to the library does the same thing.

Dont be a D*** in a public place, and dont claim it wasnt you when the video shows otherwise.

Yes you are correct that you can legally put up CCTV overlooking public places, however as it is overlooking a public place it is subject to Data Protection laws.

Which in other words means that if you have CCTV overlooking a public space, the operator of the CCTV needs to inform people (the public) you are using CCTV by putting up signs stating that recording is taking place and why. Along with Subject Access Requests and Deleting footage of people when requested. I can go on for longer but I will probably get told I am 'stealing this thread'. You can find out more from the ICO which you John as a operator should be aware of.
