The government has unveiled new plans that will no longer require all pubs to install a CCTV security system as a legal condition of their licence reports the BBC on June 15 in 'Pubs to escape demand to install CCTV if trouble-free'.

The Department for Communities and Local Government will issue new guidance to licensing authorities who will encourage police and local authorities to consider if the presence of CCTV is appropriate in all cases.

However, AlertSystems continues to stress the importance of CCTV in pubs to protect against crime such as violence and theft.

Modern CCTV systems are highly reliable with good quality images and are very affordable. Even when the law doesn’t mandate the use of a CCTV systems, we would always recommend that pubs invest in CCTV surveillance.”
