Surrey Police, in partnership with Woking Borough Council, is taking part in Surveillance Camera Day, a new national initiative aimed at raising awareness and encouraging conversations around the growing use of surveillance cameras in modern society.
On Thursday 20 June 2019, Surrey Police will open the doors to their CCTV control room in Woking Police Station to the public, providing an opportunity to look around and ask questions.
Graham Lane, Surrey Police’s Deputy Head of Contact, said: “We are really excited to be taking part in Surveillance Camera Day and we look forward to inviting the public to look around and gain an understanding of how we use CCTV in order to keep Surrey safe. We have a limited number of places available on the day and we would encourage you to reserve yours to avoid disappointment.”
