ICOT has closed circuit television cameras (“CCTV”) located throughout the building covering the classrooms, stairways, reception and the main entrance of the buildings. ICOT’s CCTV system is implemented in a proportionate manner as necessary to protect ICOT’s property against theft or pilferage and for the safety and security of staff, students and visitors to the ICOT building (to protect their vital interests).
Whilst CCTV footage is monitored from reception and DoS office, access to recorded footage is strictly limited to authorised personnel. Footage is retained for 28 days and has been removed from the system automatically except where incidents or accidents have been identified in which case such footage is retained specifically in the context of an investigation of that issue. CCTV footage may be used in the context of disciplinary proceedings involving ICOT staff or students (to protect the vital interests of ICOT, staff, students and affected individuals). CCTV footage is not disclosed to third parties except where disclosure is required by law (such as for the purpose of preventing, detecting or investigating alleged offences) and in such instances disclosure is based on a valid request. Signage indicating that CCTV is in use is displayed prominently throughout the ICOT buildings. For information on CCTV operations at ICOT please contact the Director of Operations.
