Closed circuit television cameras, commonly known as CCTV cameras, have been installed by Barnet Council across the borough.
Signage is up in all the areas covered by CCTV to ensure residents, visitors and businesses in Barnet are aware that the area is being monitored by cameras. Cameras are recording 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our cameras are operated by experienced and fully trained CCTV operators.
CCTV cameras have been installed as part of our approach to addressing community safety with the following objectives:
help reduce the fear of crime
help deter crime
help reduce vandalism and anti-social behaviour
help detect crime and provide evidential material for court proceedings
enhance community safety, assist in developing the economic well being of the London Borough of Barnet and encourage greater use of town centre facilities
