Call out for CCTV volunteers in Salisbury

By Anita Jaynes on 28 July, 2021

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 four groups of volunteers, and they are doing a great job. 

“We are gradually increasing our team and we have three places on a CCTV Operators course in October which need filling.

“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.”

This is a substantial role which takes a high degree of commitment as there is a lot to learn but is extremely important and rewarding.

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

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