CCTV – Schull

DSCF0781

CCTV in Schull – (26-1-2016) The Schull CCTV system is now under the secure and confidential control of An Garda Siochana. The imagery captured is recorded on a continual basis in Schull Garda Station. Should an incident occur requiring Garda attention the recorded images are available for viewing and downloading, subject to certain stringent conditions. Unless required the images will be automatically deleted after 30 days. The data controller for the system is The Superintendent, Bantry Garda Station.

Completion of camera installation occurred during the 2nd week of December 2015.

Images of the camera locations !

SDCC chairman chaired the CCTV public information meeting which occurred on 20th November 2014 in the parish hall. The Garda Crime Prevention Officer explained the benefits of CCTV if setup in Schull.  He explained that access to the video images, must adhere to a strict and rigorous protocol.  To prevent misuse there is a very thorough and lengthy application procedure and ultimately   approval for any Community based CCTV must be given by the Commissioner of An Garda Siochana. It is anticipated that this approval will be given in the near future.

Cork Council commissioned independent security experts to advise on the nature ​and extent of the CCTV system and the specific locations where the cameras ​should​ be located. SDCC will apply for ​ ​Community funding to help with cost of this proposed project. Current proposal by the security experts is for approximately ​ 17 cameras – wirelessly linked to Schull ​ Garda Station, ​where the recording equipment will be securely located.

Attendance included representatives of Local Community Alert, members of ​ the ​business community and residents of Schull and Goleen. ​The audience were very appreciative of the information provided by the ​Garda​ Crime Prevention Officer, based on feedback where CCTV is active in Bantry and Clonakilty.  A short Q+A ​followed the briefing. ​Those in attendance were overwhelmingly supportive of the proposal to install a CCTV System for Schull. ​
