Why have a CCTV Improvement Week?

Whilst the 'TRUSTED' Project is about taking practical steps to improve the operational effectiveness of CCTV systems used for safety and security purposes, there is currently no established mechanism to help encourage operators to evaluate and where necessary improve, their existing use of video surveillance.

National CCTV Improvement Week will hopefully focus attention on the vital need to continually assess and improve the effectiveness of existing security camera systems, and provide users with a range of information necessary to help identify key operational issues that can be readily improved.

What is the TRUSTED Project?

Originally launched back in 2007, the concept of significantly improving the performance and usefullness of video surveillance systems, is based squarely on the idea of achieving "Target Recognition Using Surveillance Technology for Evidence and Detection", or "TRUSTED" for short.

The latest stages of the project are intended to address a number of everyday operational issues, which are considered to be in urgent need of redress.
