Call out for CCTV Volunteers

on Tuesday, 21 January 2020.

Salisbury City Council are seeking volunteers to monitor and operate the new state-of-the-art digital CCTV and radio system.

Jointly funded by Salisbury City Council and Salisbury BID, Salisbury CCTV has been operating the CCTV system since September 2018, when the system was passed from Wiltshire Council to Salisbury City Council.

A team of volunteers monitor the CCTV system at key times in the communications hub inside the CCTV control room at Bourne Hill.

Richard Goodman, CCTV Manager, said: “We have recruited and trained two groups of volunteers in the last year, and they are doing a great job.

“We now have capacity to train a further 12 volunteers.

“If you have good communication skills, are able to work to a high standard under pressure and are committed to Salisbury’s security and public safety, then we’d love to hear from you.”

Volunteers are asked to commit to 16 hours a month and will be trained to a professional standard and work within a strict code of practice.

Volunteers will work with many City partners including ShopWatch, PubWatch, City wardens, and Salisbury Police.

To enquire about volunteering as a CCTV Operator and for further information, please contact Richard Goodman on 07849088205 or Rgoodman@salisburycitycouncil.gov.uk
