Limerick’s CCTV project has technology to record the registration of every passing car 24 hours a day
Jess Casey, in the Limerick Leader, reports:
“Serious questions” remain unanswered in relation to a controversial €500,000 smart CCTV project, that has the technology to record the registration of every passing car 24 hours a day, and is installed across 14 Limerick towns and villages.
Limerick City and County Council (LCCC) plans to shortly roll out its Smart CCTV scheme to 13 new locations, although it has yet to receive the findings of a special investigation by the Data Protection Commissioner into its use of the scheme.
…When contacted by the Limerick Leader, a LCCC spokesperson said that CCTV systems in all 14 towns are currently recording footage live in test mode.
An Garda Siochana can access and download this footage “for the purpose of securing public order”, the spokesperson added.
