PARK WATCH is celebrating a major achievement. The Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) recently awarded the company the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice certification, for its use of CCTV enforcement cameras, automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) and body-worn video.
PARK WATCH is the first parking enforcement firm to achieve this. It is also the first organisation in the UK to have its use of ANPR subject to assessment under the code of practice. SSAIB’s lead assessor, Stephen Grieve, who conducted the assessment, says: ‘ANPR is the one area of surveillance camera systems that – until now – had not been subject to any assessments under the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice. Therefore, we are pleased to have been able to confirm to the Surveillance Camera Commissioner that PARK WATCH’s use of the technology fully meets the requirements of his code.’
