    Q1084: I think there is a CCTV camera at the location where a crime / vehicle collision took place - will it be collected by the police and used in their investigation?

    The existence of CCTV material should always be considered as a reasonable line of enquiry in a police investigation and investigators will usually view / review any CCTV that they are aware of before making a decision as to whether the footage is relevant to the investigation.

    If you are aware of the presence of a CCTV camera at a location where a crime / vehicle collision took place, we would suggest you make the police aware of this when you report an incident / collision.

    Please also see the Government website in Related Information regarding requesting CCTV footage of yourself.
