1st Burnmoor Scout Group uses closed-circuit television (CCTV) to provide a safe and secure environment for volunteers, members, and visitors to the Group’s premises, and to protect the Group’s property.

The Group’s CCTV facility records images only.  There is no audio recording.

The purposes of the Group using CCTV systems include:

  • To assist in the prevention or detection of crime or equivalent malpractice.
  • To assist in the identification and prosecution of offenders.
  • To monitor the security of the Group’s premises.
  • To ensure that health and safety rules and procedures are being complied with.
  • To assist with the identification of unauthorised actions or unsafe working practices that might result in disciplinary proceedings being instituted against volunteers and to assist in providing relevant evidence.
  • To promote productivity and efficiency.

Location of cameras

Cameras are located at strategic points throughout the Group’s premises. The Group has positioned the cameras so that they only cover communal or public areas on the premises and they have been sited so that they provide clear images.  No camera focuses, or will focus, on toilets, shower facilities or changing rooms.

All are also clearly visible.

Appropriate signs are prominently displayed so that volunteers, members and other visitors are aware they are entering an area covered by CCTV.

Recording and retention of images

Images produced by the CCTV equipment are intended to be as clear as possible so that they are effective for the purposes set out above.  Maintenance checks of the equipment are undertaken on a regular basis to ensure it is working properly and that the media is producing high quality images.

Images may be recorded either in constant real-time (24 hours a day throughout the year), or only at certain times, as the needs of the Group dictate.

As the recording system records digital images, any CCTV images that are held on the hard drive are deleted and overwritten on a recycling basis and, in any event, are not held for more than two months. Once a hard drive has reached the end of its use, it will be erased prior to disposal.

Images that are stored on, or transferred on to, removable media such as CDs are erased or destroyed once the purpose of the recording is no longer relevant.  In normal circumstances, this will be a period of one month. However, where a law enforcement agency is investigating a crime, images may need to be retained for a longer period.

Access to and disclosure of images

Access to, and disclosure of, images recorded on CCTV is restricted.  This ensures that the rights of individuals are retained.  Images can only be disclosed in accordance with the purposes for which they were originally collected.

Disclosure of images to other third parties will only be made in accordance with the purposes for which the system is used and will be limited to:

  • The police and other law enforcement agencies, where the images recorded could assist in the prevention or detection of a crime or the identification and prosecution of an offender or the identification of a victim or witness.
  • Prosecution agencies, such as the Crown Prosecution Service.
  • Relevant legal representatives.
  • Line managers involved with disciplinary and performance management processes.
  • Individuals whose images have been recorded and retained (unless disclosure would prejudice the prevention or detection of crime or the apprehension or prosecution of offenders).
  • The Group Scout Leader or Group Executive Committee are the only person(s) who are permitted to authorise disclosure of images to external third parties such as law enforcement agencies.

All requests for disclosure and access to images will be documented, including the date of the disclosure, to whom the images have been provided and the reasons why they are required.  If disclosure is denied, the reason will be recorded.

Over the last 12 months things have been relatively quiet within our grounds, this has lead to a build up of tree fall.

We need volunteers to pick up the branches that have fallen from the trees throughout the winter months, the areas to collect from are those surrounding the path and activities areas in the woodlands to the right hand side and bottom of the grounds.

Once collected these can be moved to the campfire woodpile.

(Note. the trees throughout the grounds are monitored and have regular preventative maintained to ensure safety)

Remember to be safe:

  • Do not climb the wood pile.
  • Do not climb the trees.
  • Use a wheel barrow when needed and don't overload.
