The Town Council owns and maintains a network of six public space CCTV cameras throughout the town. This is linked to a pan Cornwall partnership – the Cornwall Closed Circuit Television Management Group (CCTVMG), formed in 2015. By 2020, the partnership had grown to thirteen town councils and Cornwall Fire, Rescue and Community Safety Service (CFR&CSS). All cameras are linked to the Cornwall Council Emergency Centre and onto their control room, where real-time active monitoring takes place. CCTVMG meets quarterly to receive management reports, and discuss all matters relating to the system operations. This group is chaired and administered by representatives of a different town each calendar year. which are monitored under a 7 year contract by Cornwall fire and rescue service.
The system is operated under a code of practice which is regularly reviewed to ensure compliance with legislation and guidance, such as human rights and data protection legislation.
