Schools still use camera surveillance illegally

Schools continue to use CCTV-cameras in a way that is illegal, according to a review made by the Data Inspection Board.

It is when the cameras are used to watch over the pupils indoors during the day that it is a problem. Most of the cameras should be turned off during the day. Only if a school has had serious problems with for example violence and theft could cameras be allowed to be used. But then the school management must show that they have tried - but failed - to solve the problems in less intrusive ways first.

Camera surveillance of large areas at a school, such as the school café or common rooms, is never allowed. At one of the schools inspected, some of the cameras were hidden, which the Data Inspection Board calls "a serious infringement of the pupils personal integrity", the news agency TT reports.
