Frequently Asked Questions
CCTV – Many people are installing CCTV in their properties as a home security measure as it has proved to be an effective tool in fighting crime. If the camera is recording you in your home, a place where you would expect to have total privacy then there could be an issue with regards to invasion of privacy. Firstly, it would be advisable to speak to your neighbour to see if it is possible to move the camera so that it does not point at your property. If this is not possible and you want to take further action you would need to seek legal advice from a solicitor.
Civil Disputes – Civil disputes are generally matters in which the Police have no reason to become involved. Most Civil disputes relate to genuine disagreements between 2 or more parties regarding ownership or access to property, or to monies. With such disputes the Police do not have any powers to investigate. Individuals should contact their Solicitor or Citizens Advice Bureau with a view to taking private civil action.
