All our buses have CCTV cameras and sound recording facilities installed.
In providing CCTV cover for our staff and customers, we hope to deter crime and provide a safer, more secure working and travelling environment for both staff and customers.
Images and sound are recorded and monitored for your safety, insurance purposes, internal investigations and to help prevent crime.
We also have a fully equipped CCTV Central Office with the necessary technology to process recordings.
Each incident will be dealt with in accordance with our Code of Practice and the 1998 Data Protection Act. This scheme is controlled by Nottingham City Transport.
