East Yorkshire CCTV Fiasco

As a result of my investigations, I believe it can be safely said that the operating of CCTV systems across East Yorkshire are a fiasco.

Lee Freeman, Chief Constable, Humberside Police

Given the potential issues that could arise from the unlawful operation of a CCTV, I requested Lee Freeman, Chief Constable, Humberside Police to intervene when I exposed the failures of the Pocklington system. I await his reply.

As a result of the Chief Constables silence, I investigated further. I have now revealed that further systems are being operated unlawfully:

  1. Pocklington
  2. Market Weighton
  3. Driffield

The potential repercussions are not just from the past but are also current. The delay in Humberside Police addressing my concerns could add to the potential repercussions. These may include:

  1. Convicted criminals being released due to inadmissible evidence being used against them.
  2. Convicted criminals taking legal cases against Humberside Police.
  3. Humberside Police wasting taxpayers resources by having to agree on settlement terms for their failures.

As this may be the tip of a major UK wide miscarriage of justice I have requested the Chief Constable to intervene locally and to refer the matter to the Home Office.
