Erewash Borough Council has a number of CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) cameras located in key areas around the Borough for your safety and detection of crime and anti-social behaviour. Cameras are situated on buildings and columns throughout the Borough and link through to our Control Rooms, which are located in Ilkeston and Long Eaton Police Station. The cameras are monitored at various times during the week and weekends by police volunteers.
A list of all of the CCTV cameras in the borough is available here - CCTV cameras in Erewash.
In addition to these, each of the following council buildings has a number of public facing CCTV cameras on a system that is monitored and managed within each of the buildings:
Civic Centre, Long Eaton
Ilkeston Town Hall
West Park Nursery, Long Eaton
Merlin House, Merlin Way, Ilkeston
Erewash Museum, Ilkeston
The council also uses CCTV cameras on its refuse vehicles, as well as body worn cameras for Neighbourhood Wardens and has a rapid deployment CCTV system.
If you witness a crime or incident that you believe was captured on one of the CCTV cameras, please phone 999 if the incident is taking place at the time or phone 101 to report it on the non-emergency police contact number.
Under the Data Protection Act, you have the right to request footage of yourself that has been captured on the CCTV cameras. If you wish to make a request for this footage, this is known as a Subject Access Request and there is certain information that you are required to provide in writing. This can all be completed by using our CCTV Subject Access Request Form or by visiting our Data Protection pages.
Please find a copy of our CCTV policy here. Please note, this policy is in the process of being updated to reflect the outsourcing of our Sport and Leisure services. As a result of this, all CCTV cameras in leisure and sports centres previously run by Erewash Borough Council are now the responsibility of Parkwood Leisure Limited.
For more information on how we use CCTV cameras, see our CCTV Privacy Notice.
Further information on your rights is available on the gov.uk website.
