Camera Security

Policy updated: 01.12.22

Our measures

Better-E is committed to protecting the community’s safety and property while respecting the privacy rights of our employees, customers, and visitors. Cameras serve as a visual deterrent to crime, aid in overall security measures, and increase the possibility of identifying and apprehending individuals who violate our policies and/or commit criminal acts. 
 
Cameras do not guarantee safety, but they can serve as deterrents and alert authorities to potential danger. Surveillance cameras are primarily used to record images in order to identify individuals and activity in the event of a violation of law or policy. The cameras are not being actively monitored. They are only viewed when a crime or violation is reported.
 
This policy governs the use of surveillance cameras in order to protect the community’s legal and privacy interests. This policy applies to all Better-E individuals and organizations that use surveillance systems and devices to monitor and/or record activity.

Better-E respects community members’ right to privacy and balances that right with the community’s safety needs. The use of security cameras to record public areas for security purposes will be carried out in accordance with existing policies.
