CCTV Cameras

North Plains Police Department operates two video cameras located on Commercial Street and Glencoe Road.  Both high resolution cameras have the ability to record during the day and evening.  The video is stored at the City of North Plains Police Department.  Only sworn personnel have access to the video.

The purpose of the cameras is to leverage existing police resources.  Video can assist with identifying people and vehicles in the area in the event of a crime, accident or other event.

In accordance with State record retention rules regarding security video recordings may be automatically overwritten after 30 days.  If an electronic file is created from the video for the purpose of investigation or in response to a public records request, the specially created electronic file will be retained for a minimum of two years.
