You have the right to see any images of you that have been recorded by the Council’s CCTV network, subject to certain Data Protection Act exceptions.
If you need to see footage about yourself you should:-
- fill in the online CCTV Request Form (see 'Related Links')
- apply in writing to:
The Data Protection Officer
Room 115, County Hall
Wakefield WF1 2QW
Tel: 01924 306112
You should do this as soon as possible. Telling us where and when the footage was shot so that we can secure it for examination and release.
Tapes are re-used. The longest we would retain routine, unrequested footage for is 31 days. The retention period can be shorter in some instances.
Please note that when you request to see CCTV footage that as well as requiring the £10 fee and proof of identification, we also need to receive a recent photograph of you so that we can find the relevant images.
You will be sent a tape containing the relevant footage within 40 days of the Council receiving your formal request.
Should we be unable to find any images of you then, if you require, you will be given the opportunity to view appropriate footage. If this inspection leaves you dissatisfied you can make representations to the Information Commissioner.
Further information about requesting CCTV images and other information under Data Protection can be found in the DSAR Public Guidance document (see 'Downloads').
