CNL, which develops physical security information management (PSIM) software, has formed a strategic technology partnership with Geoquip, a worldwide specialist in the design, development and manufacture of electronic perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS).

The partnership, through CNL's Technology Alliance Programme (TAP), will ensure Geoquip products such as its fence-mounted Defensor system are certified to work with CNL's IPSecurityCenter situation management software. Certification will allow bi-directional communication of alarm information directly with IPSecurityCenter, enabling intelligence from other systems such as video surveillance and access to verify alarms.

Andrew Rennison, the interim CCTV regulator, has recorded the following introductory message.

The National CCTV Strategy Board has strategic ownership of delivery of the strategy and will report to the Home Office on progress.

A key part of the delivery mechanism is the appointment of an Interim CCTV Regulator and establishment of an Independent Advisory Group.
These are two distinct functions but with overlapping interests in helping to determine the direction and benefits of effective implementation of the strategy.
Background

In establishing the National CCTV Oversight Body and the independent CCTV Regulator (iCCTVR), the Policing Minister also announced the establishment of an Independent Advisory Group. The IAG will provide advice to the National CCTV Strategy Board and to the iCCTVR, monitor direction on implementing the national strategy, and responding to requests for advice from the Board and the iCCTVR.

Membership of the IAG should have representatives from business, CCTV operators, community and third sector groups. It is expected that that membership of the IAG will be fluid with a core group providing the majority of support, and other members of the Group being engaged on an ad hoc basis.

The Independent Advisory Group (IAG) has been set up to bring external and independent advice and guidance to the National CCTV Strategy Board and to assist in the effective implementation of the National CCTV Strategy. The role of the IAG is to assist the National CCTV Strategy Board in conjunction with the Interim CCTV Regulator to implement the National CCTV Strategy.
iCCTV Regulator

The role of the interim Regulator will be to work with the National CCTV Strategy Board on six key areas. These are to:

* develop national standards for the installation and use of CCTV in public space;
* determine training requirements for users and practitioners;
* engage with the public and private sector in determining the need and potential content of any regulatory framework;
* raise public awareness and understanding of how CCTV operates and the benefits to tackling crime and public protection;
* review the existing recommendations of the National CCTV Strategy and advising the Strategy Board on implementation, timelines and cost and development of an effective evidence base;
* promote public awareness of the complaints process and criteria for complaints to the relevant agencies (e.g. Information Commissioner, local authority, private organisation etc) and dealing with complaints relating to technical standards.
