The cameras are manned by civilian camera operators usually employed by the local council or local road safety partnership so again.. nothing to do with the police.
I heard, a while back now, that if the camera had a yellow back on it the revenue went to the police and if it didn't it was the council (or the other way round). No idea whether this is still the case or indeed how acurate it was in the first place .
