CCTV in West Lancashire

We work with Remploy Managed Services to monitor our borough-wide network of CCTV cameras, 24 hours a day, to ensure that West Lancashire remains a safe place to live and work. We're extremely proud of the scheme, which has achieved national recognition for its innovation and environmentally friendly technology.

Why CCTV is so important 

CCTV is an important tool in providing evidence, but it plays a more important role of reducing crime and the fear of crime for local communities, and enhancing reassurance for residents, which is one of the Council's top priorities.


CCTV Code of Practice

The aim of the CCTV scheme is to provide a safe and secure public environment for the benefit of those who live, work or visit the borough. The approved partners in the CCTV scheme are the Council and its recognised community safety partners, with operational activity principally undertaken by Lancashire Constabulary.


The CCTV scheme is operated within applicable law, and only for the purposes of reducing Crime and Disorder for which it is established or purposes which are subsequently agreed in accordance with the Code of Practice. A copy of the Code of Practice for the West Lancashire CCTV Scheme can be viewed below.
