Re: Police access

"I see no reason why the police or other authorities should have any access to camera footage without either the consent of the householder or a search warrant, same as would be needed in order to obtain CCTV footage that was stored locally. As it is, the police or local councils can monitor doorbell cameras to give parking fines or prosecute people for other minor infractions, TV licencing can listen in to see if there are sounds of broadcast TV etc."

Citation Needed.... (for the UK, please, as you mentioned TV licencing).
