G-27-1 Video Camera Systems

In accordance with College Video Camera Systems Procedures, Central Oregon Community College will have surveillance cameras on its campuses.

Only the President of the College or their designee may authorize the installation and/or placement of video cameras on campus. Departments that wish to add additional cameras must submit a written request to the President or their designee. The request will be reviewed by the President or their designee for approval. In no circumstances will any College employee use or access the system for purposes beyond those identified by policy, unless prior approval is granted by the President or their designee.

Campus Public Safety employees, under the direction of the department supervisor, are responsible for the daily operation of cameras used for security purposes. They will follow all related College policies, procedures, and guidelines in the monitoring of cameras. The Director of Campus Public Safety may appoint a person to audit the monitoring operations of cameras used for security purposes, including image storage.

Departments other than Campus Public Safety may operate cameras for purposes other than security with approval by the President or their designee. All camera operations must follow related College policies, procedures, and guidelines in the use of cameras.
