Salisbury City Council is seeking volunteers to monitor and operate its digital CCTV and radio system.

The city council has been operating the CCTV system since September 2018.

A team of volunteers monitor the CCTV system at key times in the communications hub inside the control room at Bourne Hill.

The CCTV system recently underwent a £25k upgrade with additional cameras added.

Keith Jackson, CCTV Manager, said: “We have recruited and trained many groups of volunteers, and they are doing a great job.

“We are gradually increasing our team, we have places on a CCTV Operators course in the autumn, which need filling.

“If you have good communication skills, are able to work to a high standard under pressure and are committed to Salisbury’s security and public safety, then we’d love to hear from you.”

The council added: "Volunteers must be able to commit to 16 hours a month at a minimum. This is a substantial role which takes a high degree of commitment as there is a lot to learn but is extremely important and rewarding.

"You will be trained to a professional standard and work within a strict code of practice."
