By January 1st 2024 Swindon Borough Council is planning on implementing mandatory CCTV inside Taxis and Private Hire Vehicles. ACSS is a supplier for the area, and we will continue to supply Swindon Taxi & PHV drivers for the foreseeable future.
The Basic Requirements for Swindon Taxi & PHV CCTV:
Vehicle CCTV Systems in Swindon must be able to record footage for up to 28 days minimum.
ACSS will provide signage so that passengers are aware of the CCTV recording them.
Audio can only be recorded for three minutes if the driver or passenger feels unsafe and presses the panic button to activate the audio recording.
All captured footage will be protected and controlled by Swindon Borough Council so in the event of an incident you would have 24 hours to report it to the council to gain access to the footage.
The CCTV system can be comprised of up to 4 cameras, see our approved systems below.
