24-7 Monitored Camera Security System

Cameras are installed in locations where staff and patrons would not have an expectation of privacy. Examples include common areas of the facility as entrances and exits, loading and receiving areas. Cameras may be installed in areas within the facility but not where staff and public have a reasonable expectation of privacy, such as restrooms.


  • Digital video security cameras are installed in selected outdoor locations at all access points to National Archives, Inc.
  • A sign is posted at entrances informing the public that security cameras are in use.
  • Management staff have access to the real time monitors, although activity is only randomly monitored.
  • Only the company president or his designee(s) will have access to the archived material in pursuit of incidents of criminal activity, breach or violation.
  • Video stored for a minimum period of 90 calendar days. As new video is recorded, the oldest video will be automatically deleted.
  • Selected digital video may be saved for as long as required (hereinafter referred to as “Stored Digital Video Records”).
  • Stored Digital Video Records may be used to provide tangible evidence as a means of identification, and may be turned over to local authorities by the company president or his designee, to be consistent with guidelines within the Incident Management Policy.
  • Cameras are not installed for the express purpose of monitoring staff performance.
  • Requests from the public for access to camera images will be considered on a case by case basis.
