The Glasgow Operation Centre (GOC) is home to Community Safety Glasgow’s Public Space CCTV monitoring services , our Security Services, Partnership Intelligence Unit and Glasgow City Council’s Traffic Control Centre.
It monitors 440 cameras across Glasgow, all of which operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
As well as supporting CSG’s priority planning and services, the GOC also supports partnership working with agencies including Police Scotland and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, and the Clean Glasgow Initiative.
The key objectives of the GOC are to:
- enhance management of events and incidents
- reduce and prevent crime and antisocial behaviour
- improve incident response times
- embed more intelligent working practices with all key partners
The GOC also plays a vital role in public safety. Its CCTV function supports the NiteZone service that operates in the city centre; it also acts as the communication hub for both the Night and Retail Digital Networks.
