The safety camera department are currently looking for two candidates to fulfil the roles as either a safety camera operations viewer (part time – 20 hours per week) or a safety camera processing caseworker (full time – 36 hours per week).

The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) safety camera department works in partnership with Transport for London (TfL) and we are responsible for the enforcement of automated speed and red light offences received from the digital network of automated cameras distributed throughout the network of roads in London.

This activity results in police sending a Notice of Intended Prosecution to the registered keeper of a vehicle requesting details of the driver. The team handle a high volume of offences to manage offending and ensure a suitable outcome. Offences are processed through an adjudication system and drivers identified are offered an appropriate disposal outcome subject to eligibility criteria.

Depending on the role you will be responsible for:

  • Ensuring traffic violations have been correctly captured by the Digital Safety Camera Network and arrange for a Notice of Intended Prosecution to be served on the Registered Keeper within the 14 day statutory time limit.
  • Ensuring the efficient and accurate processing of cases detected by traffic safety speed and red traffic light enforcement cameras and input of related documentation.
  • Being part of a team responsible for tracing drivers of vehicles photographed by speed and red fraffic light safety camera enforcement located throughout MPS.
  • Ensuring appropriate enforcement is taken which may vary depending on the circumstances, from the issue of a National Safety Awareness course or Conditional Offer of Fixed Penalty or prosecution at court. The latter two outcomes both result in the payment of a fine and driving licence endorsement.
