|22/07/2020||Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner ( JOIC) |
The Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner (JOIC) has seen an increase in enquiries to its office regarding the domestic use of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) and is reminding Islanders CCTV should be used only as a last resort where other less intrusive approaches have failed or to address real and serious threats to individual health and safety or the protection of property.
If you have to use CCTV at home, follow the JOIC's top tips for best practice:
- Do you really need to use CCTV? Consider carefully the position of your cameras and why you are installing CCTV. Also consider what it is you are trying to capture or resolve.
- If your CCTV captures images of people outside the boundaries of your home, for example in neighbours' homes or gardens, shared spaces or on a public footpath or a street, then you will need to meet certain requirements of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018.
- If your CCTV does capture images of people outside the boundaries of your home, then you are required to put up a sign in the area of the camera(s). The sign must:
- Be clear, visible and readable.
- Contain details of the purpose of the surveillance and who to contact about the recording.
- Include contact details such as website address, telephone number or email address.
- If you have to use CCTV at home, preferably disable any audio facility.
- Remember, if your CCTV records only your property and your family, you do NOT need to comply with the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 but if you install CCTV for other than a purely personal or domestic purpose (i.e. it captures images in public areas), you will be a data controller and will need to register with the Jersey Office of the Information Commissioner and comply with the law.

Lockdown restrictions may have been relaxed but dog owners are reminded they still have a duty to pick up their dog's mess.
With more people likely to be out for a longer period each day the Connetables are asking dog owners to consider all other beach users.
Owners should ensure they keep their dog under control at all times and pick up their dog's mess.
Chairman of the Comité des Connétables, Deidre Mezbourian, said –
The Connétables wish to remind dog owners of the law and that they must pick up their dog's mess and dispose of it in a bin.
Connetables are receiving compaints about the condition of beaches and also parks, sand dunes and footpaths. The requirement to clean up after your dog applies to all public areas including roads and pavements.
It is an offence to dispose of plastic bags containing dog faeces other than in a waste receptacle and there are lots of bins around the island. If you can't find a bin then take the litter home with you – don't discard the bag in the hedge or trees.
A fine of up to £1,000 can be imposed on those who do not clean up after their dog.
