Should schools have security cameras?

Schools should have cameras to ensure the safety of their students and faculty. Cameras are great for school administrators to monitor people entering and leaving their campus. Cameras are also a great deterrent to prevent potential crimes from occurring.

How long do schools keep security camera footage?

On average, the footage recorded by school security cameras would be kept for about 30-90 days, but the recording period would vary among schools and institutions. The school security camera systems will automatically overwrite the oldest recorded footage once the storage space runs out. Generally, the administration will know about any event that requires the review of the camera footage within the first few days.

Are there security cameras in classrooms?

School cameras are typically placed in areas that do not infringe on students' right to privacy, such as classrooms, hallways, common areas, and building perimeters. However, installing security surveillance cameras in school bathrooms or toilets where there is reasonable expectation of privacy is definitely illegal. In a public school setting there are union regulations against the recording of faculty in their classroom space.
