PART 1 - CCTV SYSTEMS TO BE OPERATED BY COMMUNITY BASED
GROUPS UNDER SECTION 38(3)(C) GARDA SÍOCHÁNA ACT 2005
1.1 Introduction
This document outlines the minimum technical/operational criteria, which section
38(3)(c) CCTV Systems must comply with in order to obtain authorisation from the
Garda Commissioner. For the purposes of this document, references throughout the
document to “Community Based Group” have the same meaning as is given to
“authorised person” under section 38(3)(c) of the Garda Síochána Act 2005 and the
Garda Síochána (CCTV) Order 2006.
Each section 38(3)(c) CCTV system will generally involve one or more interest
groups (stakeholders) representing various sections of the community. Examples of
different stakeholders might be:
• Local Authority
• Residents Association
• Chamber of Commerce
• Emergency Services
1.2 Scope of this Document
This document provides guidelines and specifications which are to be met by
Community-based Groups proposing to establish and operate a CCTV system with
the authorisation of the Garda Commissioner as outlined by section 38(3)(c) of the
Garda Síochána Act 2005. The first part of the document provides guidance to
groups on how they might prepare a statement of operational requirements and the
actions required to gain the most appropriate response from the CCTV system. This
statement, compiled from each stakeholders requirement, will form an Operational
Requirement on which a CCTV system may be designed which best meets the
requirements of the community group.
The remaining part of the document provides technical guidance and specifications
of equipment and operating procedures designed to ensure that picture quality and
content meet the requirements of the observers and the An Garda Síochána.
1.3 Community based Group Responsibilities
The Community based proposal will be required to demonstrate its technical
suitability against the Group’s Operational Requirement and the Code of Practice for
CCTV Systems authorised under Section 38(3)(c), Garda Síochána Act 2005.
Health and Safety in regard to the overall system, its operators/employees and the
general public are the responsibility of the Community based Group.
1.4 Addendum
The Commissioner of An Garda Síochána, the Minister for Justice and Equality and
all respective servants, and employees thereof accept no liability for any losses or
injuries in connection with the works or the ongoing use of the CCTV systems
operated by the Community based Group.

PART 2 - GUIDANCE NOTES FOR PROSPECTIVE APPLICANTS
2.1 Guidance for Design of a Section 38(3)(c) CCTV System
As an aid to designing a CCTV system, it is recommended that a methodology is
adopted in order to plan a system which best represents the requirements of the
various stake-holders and provides a solution which achieves the benefits which
such a system is capable of providing. The basis of any system should be an
Operational Requirement, completed jointly by the Group. The Operational
Requirement will form the basis for the design and operation of an effective and
economic system. The methodology recommended here provides a process that
identifies key factors, which impact on performance of the system and the way it will
be operated.
2.2 Consultation
Consultation should be conducted within each area where such a system is
envisaged. Residents in particular should be fully consulted and informed of the
proposal. Care should be taken on the design of the CCTV system to ensure that it is
acceptable to local residents regarding the location of equipment and equipment
should be deployed so as to avoid any undue intrusion.
Before making a final application to the Garda Commissioner for authorisation, the
CCTV system as proposed must have received the approval of the relevant Garda
Divisional Officer and the approval of the relevant local authority for the area
following consultation with the Joint Policing Committee for the area, as outlined in
section 38(3)(c) of the Garda Síochána Act, 2005.
A CCTV system cannot be considered for authorisation by the Garda Commissioner
unless the consultation and approval process outlined above has first taken place.
2.3 Operational Requirement
Each stake-holder of the Group should be encouraged to undertake surveys of their
members’ requirements and compile an Operational Requirement document. In
preparing an Operational Requirement, each group or stakeholder should be
provided with a plan of the area concerned and an “Operational Requirement Check
List” (Appendix “A”) should be compiled and completed in respect of each problem
encountered. The observations of each stakeholder are prioritised and a plan or map
of the area, appropriately marked by the stakeholder, is drawn up.
The completed “Check Lists” together with the plan or map completed by each
stakeholder forms a comprehensive view of the problems encountered by the Group.
The combining and prioritising of all the requirements will provide the basis on which
the design and operation of the system can be formulated.
2.4 Analysis
From the combined Operational Requirements submitted, the group should be in a
position to analyse the submissions and prioritise the requirements. Financial
analysis of the plan will need to be undertaken in order to size the plan to best meet
the agreed requirements and budgets. Capital costs, running/staffing costs,
maintenance and insurance should each be factored in. Applicants will need to
demonstrate how running costs will be met and that the system is sustainable for at
least five years from the date of the installation of the equipment. Analysis of the
individual stakeholder Operational Requirements and a financial analysis will result in
the overall Operational Requirement of the Group.
4
2.5 Application for Authorisation
The Group will make an application for authorisation in the format outlined by the
Garda Commissioner.
2.6 Installation and Commissioning
Following installation of the CCTV system, a full commission and test of the system
should be carried out to ensure the system meets the specification and the
Operational Requirements. The tests should be carried out by the Contractor and
witnessed by the customer. Both parties should certify that they have complied with
the specification. The document and a copy of the test results should be forwarded
to An Garda Síochána, who will inspect and confirm that the system is as specified.

PART 3 – CCTV System Technical Requirements
3.1 General
It is a requirement that each camera in the system is capable of Pan, Tilt and Zoom
(including other necessary functions), by an operator located at the monitoring
centre. The camera system should meet the requirements listed below and those of
the Operational Requirements. The specifications describe individual component
parts of a camera system, however, this does not exclude the use of integrated
camera systems (telemetry, pan/tilt unit, camera, lens and enclosure), provided that
quality and feature specifications are satisfied.
The following external camera types are recommended:Pan, tilt and zoom camera system assembled by the Contractor.
Pan, tilt & zoom camera with integrated optics and telemetry (pre-built).
Dome camera with integrated optics and telemetry.
Each type of camera listed above exhibit attributes that may offer enhanced
suitability for particular operational requirements. Features and capabilities that
