Local TD says gardai will be able to resolve community CCTV concerns

Longford/Westmeath Deputy Willie Penrose says he hopes the gardai will be able to resolve any concerns over privacy and the use of community CCTV.

The Labour Deputy was commenting today on concerns expressed by the Data Protection Commissioner in relation to some schemes which have been introduced around the country.

Deputy Penrose says he believes CCTV is a valuable tool to the gardai in the detection of crime, and he is confident the force can resolve any issues that might be raised in relation to its use.
