CCL offers a complete range of CCTV enhancement and analysis services to police and other law enforcement agencies.
The service can complement – or be complemented by – our other digital forensic disciplines including computer and phone forensics and cell site analysis.
The company’s CCTV department utilises the latest in CCTV enhancement and analysis technology, which allows us to deal with CCTV evidence from any system and in any format.
Our experienced team can provide free advice on the potential of the CCTV evidence which forms part of your case, along with how our analysts – backed up with powerful technology – can add value to your investigation.
This is an example of how an image can be enhanced. (It is not possible for us to show actual evidence for confidentiality and legal reasons.)
Note in particular the blue book on the right: "Principles of Physiology" is clearly readable, compared to the image on the left.
This type of image improvement is particularly useful in enhancing footage of car number plates.
Image enhancement is one of a number of CCTV services we provide. Read on to find out more...
What we can analyse
CCL-Forensics can analyse CCTV from any CCTV system, whether we are provided with footage exported from the device (on CD/DVD etc.) or even the device itself.
If investigators have viewed the footage, the relevant portions can be enhanced, edited, highlighted, pixelated, annotated or converted, before being presented back to the OIC in a court-friendly format.
If the investigator is unable to view the footage (due to proprietary or non-standard systems), CCL-Forensics can extract the data, and provide it for review on CD/DVD or other suitable media.

CCL provides itself on being able to accommodate urgent requests for CCTV analysis, and we will endeavour to complete your urgent requests in as short a time as possible.
If you have a particular deadline for a case, please let us know at the outset, and we can give you an estimated completion date.
No two CCTV requirements are the same, and CCL is committed to fully understanding your requirements from the outset.
It may be that this can be discussed in detail over the telephone, but it is also possible that a “case conference” or initial face-to-face interview may be required. This will allow us to give a precise quotation for the assignment in question, and to inform you of what you can expect from the result, and how long it will take.
For more information, or for a no-obligation discussion about our CCTV services for the prosecution, please call 01789 261200 or email email@example.com.
