Security / Surveillance Cameras
The University of Florida is committed to enhancing the quality of life of the campus community by integrating the best practices of safety and security with technology. A critical component of a comprehensive security plan is the utilization of video surveillance technologies. The primary use of video surveillance cameras is intended to deter unwanted events and to identify individuals and activity if the law or university policy is violated. The technology also provides the UF Police Department evidence to conduct investigations after an incident occurs.
University surveillance cameras are not monitored continuously under normal operating conditions but may be monitored for legitimate safety and security purposes that include, but are not limited to, the following: life safety situations, high risk areas, restricted access areas/locations, in response to an alarm, special events, and active criminal activity. The main goal of using security cameras and surveillance technology is to prevent crime and assist in protecting Gator Nation and its property.
UF Physical Security utilizes Genetec Security Center as it’s software platform to manage security cameras. Video images are centrally managed and maintained for 30 days.
