Security Camera Policy

Only the Executive Director, or a designated representative, may review security camera footage.

If an individual suspects a crime has occurred, they must report the incident to the police. The director will review footage upon request from law enforcement and provide copies as warranted. Rink personnel will not review footage as requested by an individual without documentation that a police report has been filed. Footage is retained for 14 days, so reports must be filed quickly.

Any identification of individuals in the footage will not be made public, unless deemed useful by law enforcement.
