Video surveillance systems are a great tool for ensuring student and driver safety on school buses.But having cameras installed on your buses without a well-defined video surveillance policy is a recipe for disaster, leaving your school district open to potential lawsuits or privacy complaints.
Here are three reasons why you need to publish a video surveillance policy today:
# 1 – The policy ensures the balance between security and an individual's right to privacy.
Putting this document in place is one of the best ways to protect the reputation of the transportation department in cases of complaints from parents or drivers concerned about privacy.
# 2 – The policy helps to assign responsibility for video surveillance system and files.
The policy allows assigning tasks between different groups of personnel.
# 3 – The policy ensures proper storage and distribution of recorded files.
Creating guidelines for storing and managing video will save your transportation department a lot of time. It will also help to keep the recordings safe and secure, and at the same time find the requested information faster.
