North Park University deploys a number of CCTV cameras across the campus to assist in enhancing public safety, monitoring and protecting University assets, and investigating criminal activity. The use of these cameras is consistent with the values of the institution. Cameras are mounted in and view only public areas and in no way infringe on any member of the campus community’s right to privacy.
Camera images are not monitored on a continual basis. Data from the cameras is stored on the University’s network servers and is retrieved and reviewed when necessary to affect the goals and interests of the Office of Campus Security. Only authorized personnel have access to the camera system data in order to review prior recorded activity.
The Office of Campus Security continues to employ technology in the many facets of its operations in order to more effectively serve all members of the North Park community.
