Public Space Surveillance
An SIA licence is required if you undertake the licensable activities of a public space surveillance operative and your services are supplied for the purposes of or in connection with any contract to a consumer. Unless your employer or company has been given an exemption under Section 4(4) of the Private Security Industry Act 2001, it is a criminal offence to undertake the licensable activities of a public space surveillance CCTV operative without an SIA licence. An exemption is applicable only where the company in question has been granted approved contractor status by the SIA and the other conditions of Section 4(4) have also been met. Every condition must be met for this section to be applied. More information about Section 4(4).
Cost of a Licence. The licence application fee is £220 for a three year licence. The fee is to cover the cost of processing your application and is not refundable. If you pay your own licence fee you will be able to claim tax relief against your taxable income – for example, if you pay the basic rate of tax the relief is currently worth £44. If you are an employer paying the licence fee on behalf of an employee there will be no tax or National Insurance liability. 50% discount: Some people may need more than one licence; in such cases the second licence will be discounted by 50%.
More information about the discount. In some cases, we are satisfied that the licensing criteria to be met for one licensable activity are sufficient to allow a licensed individual to carry out other licensable activities.
CCTV: Does it work?
Britain is increasingly becoming a place caught on videotape but opinion is divided about the real effect CCTV cameras have on reducing crime. The average citizen in the UK is caught on CCTV cameras 300 times a day. CCTV footage memorably caught the last movements of BBC presenter Jill Dando before her murder in 1999. Cameras set up in a Bootle shopping centre in 1993 caught three-year-old James Bulger being led away by the two 10-year-olds who murdered him. Detectives hunting a nail bomber who was responsible for three murders during 13 days in London in April 1999, credited CCTV cameras with the major breakthrough in the case.
A report by the National Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders which was based on Home Office research, revealed that of 24 studies carried out in city centres, only 13 showed crime had fallen since CCTV cameras were installed. The police have routinely praised the use of street cameras. For the police to have tape at trials, the cameras have to work in the first place. Police investigating the rape of a mentally ill patient at a hospital in Ealing, London, in June hoped CCTV cameras over the building’s entrance would provide them with vital clues to her attacker. CCTV also missed the vital seconds in March when they believe Surrey schoolgirl Milly Dowler was abducted.
A conference on CCTV cameras is being organised by the BBC Crimewatch UK programme and the Jill Dando Institute of Crime Science. They will focus on the best CCTV systems, how they should best be used and how technology can be improved.
