Digital Video Security Cameras Policy

Policy Statement

The Dayton Metro Library serves our community by providing ready access to information and ideas. Essential to completing its mission, the Library must offer a welcoming, open atmosphere and provide a quiet, comfortable and orderly environment where people can use the library facilities and collections for intended purposes to the maximum extent possible.

Security cameras will be used where needed to provide peace of mind to library users and staff by discouraging violations of the library's code of conduct, to assist library staff in preventing the recurrence of any violations, and when necessary, provide law enforcement assistance in prosecuting criminal activity. The purpose of this policy is to establish guidelines for the placement and use of digital video cameras, as well as the access and retrieval of recorded digital video images at the Dayton Metro Library.

Regulations

  • The Dayton Metro Library interprets digital video images as a library record per Section 149.432 of the Ohio Revised Code. These archived images will be treated the same as a library record and only released following procedures outlined in the Library Privacy Policy. (Confidentiality of Library and Patron Records Policy approved by the Board of Trustees 9-19-2000)
  • Cameras may be installed in places where staff and patrons lack a reasonable expectation of privacy. Examples include common areas of the library such as entrances, book stacks, public seating, hallways, stairways, delivery areas and parking lots.
  • Cameras will not be installed in areas of the library where staff or patrons have a reasonable expectation of privacy, such as restrooms.
  • Signs will be posted at Library entrances informing the public that security cameras are in use.
  • Cameras will not be installed for the express purpose of monitoring staff performance.
