Video Surveillance Haliburton Welcome Centre

The Municipality of Dysart et al is proposing to install a video surveillance camera at the Haliburton Welcome Centre. The footage from these cameras would not be available for public viewing and would only be viewed by designated staff and/or law enforcement, if an incidence occurs at the Welcome Centre or surrounding area that requires further investigation.

In recent years there have been acts of vandalism at Head Lake Park; with video surveillance, we could aid law enforcement with their investigation and hopefully catch the person(s) involved. Additionally, if someone were to get hurt or be approached by another individual in an unsafe manner, the footage could be used for investigative purposes.

Without video surveillance, it makes it more difficult for the municipality and law enforcement to prove what happened in a particular incident, whether that be vandalism, an altercation or someone getting injured. We would like to protect the Haliburton Welcome Centre and its users as best of possible.

The Municipalities Video Surveillance Policy incorporates many best practices as outlined by the Information Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, and ensures that the Municipality will:

  • minimize the amount of video surveillance data taken;
  • only store surveillance video for 7 days (unless the surveillance video is used for a reason authorized by the policy);
  • notify individuals, through the use of signage, when video surveillance is in use;
  • take all reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized access to collected data and inadvertent destruction of, or damage to, collected data.
