Dear Dorset Police,

Under the freedom of Information Act – I was hoping to obtain the following information:
Name(s) of person telephone number and email address of person responsible for managing CCTV and the Data. Who is responsible for purchasing CCTV and Data Storage of CCTV.
I also seek answers to the following questions:
How many cameras do you manage today? Is that growing?
How do you store and manage your video today? (Network Video Recorders? Enterprise Storage?)
Has your company ever lost video, or experienced poor-quality playback of video files?
How critical is video to your company? What is the impact of not being able to access video or record video?
When was the last time you refreshed your surveillance storage hardware?
Do you have an upgrade/refresh date? If so when?
What is your budget for the refresh?

Yours faithfully,

Jay Rouf

Dear Jay Rouf

 

I write in connection with your Freedom of Information request, which was
submitted to Dorset Police on  04/05/2018.  I note you are requesting
information as follows:

 

Name(s) of person telephone number and email address of person responsible
for managing CCTV and the Data. Who is responsible for purchasing CCTV and
Data Storage of CCTV.

 

I also seek answers to the following questions:

 

How many cameras do you manage today? Is that growing?

How do you store and manage your video today? (Network Video Recorders?
Enterprise Storage?) Has your company ever lost video, or experienced
poor-quality playback of video files?

able to access video or record video?

When was the last time you refreshed your surveillance storage hardware?

Do you have an upgrade/refresh date? If so when?

It has been some time since your request was submitted, and it appears it
has not been processed in line with the Act and responded to as required
under the stated timescales.  For this I sincerely apologise, and
appreciate the frustration this may have caused. 

My intention in writing to you is to ask whether you still require a
response to your request, as the FOI Team continue to work through all
identified requests that have not been answered.  If however you no longer
require a response to this request, I would be grateful if you confirm by
return of this email.  All unresolved cases are being worked through as
quickly as possible. 

 

I once again apologise for the significant delays, and ask for your
understanding as we work through a number of outstanding cases.  I
appreciate this situation is not acceptable, and we are also working to
improve processes and staffing levels for the future. 

 

If you wish to discuss at all, please feel free to contact me. 

 

Yours sincerely
