More about this course

The duty of a Surveillance Security Operative is to monitor premises for misbehaviour or any unlawful activities. From a single location, usually called the ‘control room’ a CCTV Officer will keep a vigilant eye on all cameras and screens for caution. CCTV has become an indispensable part of law enforcement and any misconduct should be reported immediately. An alert and attentive operative is needed for such a role as the safety and security of the premises is their responsibility.


The skills needed for CCTV employment includes the knowledge of how to use CCTV equipment, stay extremely observant at all times when monitoring the screens and most importantly, how to deal with the witnessing of an unlawful incident. These skills are required for a CCTV Operative and can only be taught through an SIA training course.
