CCTV is a vital element in tacking crime in London, helping to secure convictions and assure public safety. Local authorities, TfL and law enforcement partners already share images when it is appropriate to do so and will continue to do so.

My Office for Policing and Crime is currently working to review the status of CCTV in the capital. Officers are looking to identify opportunities for improvement, to enhance joined up working and to ensure we are making the most of the benefits brought to us through emerging technology.
