Guide to Developing CCTV for Public Safety in Victoria

The guide is a helpful resource for any council or organisation considering implementing a CCTV system. It outlines the recommended steps and key considerations that should be followed when implementing and evaluating a CCTV system.

The guide should be read in conjunction with the attached Surveillance and Privacy Information Sheet, prepared in March 2012 by the Office of the Victorian Privacy Commissioner (now the Office of the Commissioner for Privacy and Data Protection). The Information Sheet provides important information on privacy obligations for councils considering or operating CCTV systems. The information applies to government organisations that are bound by the Privacy and Data Protection Act 2014 (Vic) which repealed the Information Privacy Act 2000 (Vic). For more information, including a copy of the Privacy Impact Assessment template, visit the Office of the Commissioner for Privacy and Data Protection website.
