The restaurants operating in central London are subject to Westminster Council Hospitality regulations. Under these regulations, they have several restrictions on the type of service they can offer, food or drink they can serve, the opening times and even how they must protect their staff, premises, stock and most importantly their customers. Hence, a CCTV security system is a must-have. A report from House of Lords Committee in 2009 found out that the Labour government from 1996 to 2006 spent a whopping 500 million pounds on installing CCTV surveillance systems all across London. The reason is simple; CCTV monitoring works and crimes can either be deterred or resolved as the video recording provides crucial evidence. So as a London restaurant owner you need to make the very important decision of securing your business, staff, stock and your customers. Installing CCTV camera security systems will also help you tick a good box for the Westminster Council. Even better, you do not need to be on site at all times, you can monitor how your restaurant is running virtually via your phone or laptop. The live video camera recordings in colour, are transferred over the internet and reach straight to you. If you find something is not right, you can always alert your onsite managers to take immediate action. Another interesting use of CCTV systems in your restaurant can be installing it in your kitchen for purposes of Quality Control. In September of 2011 The Mirror newspaper ran a story on Jamie Oliver installing cameras inside 19 of his 23 restaurants. Chefs know they are running and the cameras are switched on the entire time they are ­working. Pictures are sent back live to a central database which Jamie can view at the click of a mouse wherever he is in the world.Footage is also regularly watched by Jamie’s team of executive chefs at his London HQ. They conduct random ­quality checks on his behalf.
