Duties for SIA CCTV operators may include answering telephones, taking messages, checking fire alarm and of course public space surveillance. An SIA CCTV operator’s duties may also include providing a roaming patrol of the premises including its car park and communal areas, as well as restricting access to any areas deemed ‘off-limits’.
CCTV operators also monitor staff working off-site in high-risk areas or potentially dangerous situations. An example of this involves social workers called up on to make emergency night visit to clients. The social worker gives the CCTV operators the address they are due to visit, and are instructed to ‘phone in’ at agreed upon regular intervals. If more than 30 minutes passes without a phone call, the SIA CCTV operator rings them on their mobile phone. And, if no reply is forthcoming, the police are contacted.
SIA CCTV operators keep a written log of any and all incidents they see on their screens, and ensure all incoming video feeds are correctly recorded and labeled.
