CCTV Training was out and about recently at Royal Ascot. The mobile unit
was deployed to monitor crowds and deter ticket touts but happily all were enjoying themselves too much to create problems.
Earlier this month we were at the Epsom Derby in Surrey. The weather was
excellent, resulting in huge crowds again.
On June 28th we are taking part in an Armed Forces
Parade in Dorking Surrey. This will include members of the armed forces who are being rehabilitated at Headley Court. Headley
Court is the home of the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) which serves to return injured or seriously ill military
personnel to optimum physical and psychological fitness in the shortest possible time
above will take you to the council website with details if you want to come along and support the troops.
The new CCTV
National Standards Forum has it's website up and running and you can access it on this link www.cnsf.co.uk. Please view the site and see what is happening in respect of standards and the new Camera Surveillance Commissioner
Andrew Rennison, who has invited the CNSF to be part of his review group for the new CCTV Code of Practice.
Protection of Freedoms Act creates the post of Camera Surveillance Commissioner. He has the task of formulating a Code of
Practice for CCTV which will include ANPR and other surveillance mediums.The only problem is the Code will only apply to Public
Authority CCTV at first and not to private systems, which may come under it later.
CCTV Training recently delivered a number of courses to CCTV
operators in Kurdistan, IRAQ. Over 60 security staff undertook the UK equivalent SIA course and are now engaged in operating
CCTV for a large recently completed airport.
In August we delivered training to a University security team in Saudi Arabia.
This will be our fourth visit there but the floodlit golf course has nothing to do with our attendance, nor has the private
beach on the Red Sea! 30 Students completed the Command and Control Course we designed on behalf of Highfield and which we
succesfully delivered. CCTV was a major part of the course.
CCTV Training is a centre for the awarding body HABC. (Highfield Awarding Body for
Compliance) This organisation has been overseeing health and safety and food awards for some time and has only recently been
granted approval to run SIA awards in security topics. CCTV Training is one of the first training companies to deliver this
qualification under HABC and we believe that this course delivery will be even more suitable to students trying for their
SIA CCTV Operator licence. We work very closely with Highfield and help to design CCTV training materials.
