Fly Tipping CCTV Strategy & Enforcement

Fly tipping rubbish in a street


In our findings over the last 7 years we have found through experience that it’s never enough just to have the right covert equipment…more importantly the right strategy must be in place.

  1. To effectively raise awareness in your county a strong, bold operation name is crucial. This ensures people can relate and reference the operation. Some good examples are:
    • Durham County Council - OPERATION STOP IT
    • Croydon Council - DON’T MESS WITH CROYDON
  2. Choosing reliable covert CCTV equipment from Vipa UK can ensure a simple straight forward prosecution. This is down to the robust, easy to install, affordable equipment we supply. All of our equipment is compliant with all current legislation (ENCRYPTION).
  3. Social Media can play a large role in your campaign against fly tipping, using popular websites i.e. Facebook/Twitter. Using an already established account will help spread your campaign further. Designing and handing out leaflets to members of the public and businesses will also help spread your campaign.
  4. Seeking advice and support from your legal team is a must. They will ensure the whole operation conforms to the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000.
  5. Finally ensuring all employees involved in the deployment of covert CCTV equipment, have adequate relevant training. Understanding the technical limitations of the equipment is also desired.

All of the above is a sample of what Vipa UK are able to offer in terms of on-going support, guidance and training.

Environmental Crime

Fly tipping rubbish dumped by the side of a road

An environmental crime is a violation of environmental laws that are put into place to protect the environment. When broadly defined, the crime includes all illegal acts that directly cause Environmental harm.

FLY TIPPING as it is commonly known as, has been an increasing crime over the past years, with enforcement agencies having to deal with a larger workload. With many conversations and meetings with all concerned the ViPA fly tipping enforcement kit was designed, manufactured has been used for years by many Enforcement Agencies. It has recently developed into an encrypted HD system called ENVIRO-GUARD with an impressive technical specification, easily installed without specialist knowledge or tools, with constant or VMD recording.

This 12vd/c system is extremely covert in nature and will capture many days of HD recording. It has a solid state hard drive, secure play back software and the important plug in covert devices & lenses.


Anti-Social Behaviour

Anti-social graffiti on a wall

Anti-social behaviour is behaviour that lacks consideration for others and that may cause damage to society.

ViPA UK Ltd has over the past years worked with most enforcement agencies (Police, Councils, Environment Agency) on how electronic surveillance equipment might best suit their needs to combat A.S.B. The need was to have a re-deployable system that can be quickly installed, will be self recording for 30 days and be able to be powered from a mains & battery power source.

It should be able to be installed on a street lighting column or simply placed on a shop wall front. And of course be very cost effective!


Out of the above was born the ViPA STREET SCENE UNIT with an impressive technical specification and the all important cost vs effectiveness
