Security Video Tape Retention Guidelines

Answered by: 

Question: 
What is the current banking practice for the retention of security video tapes?
Answer: 

I wish I could say a year - because that would be what law enforcement and security would like best. But I'm afraid that scarcely half of our financial institutions are keeping tapes six months. Many are keeping them less. The length of time you keep the tapes is not the only problem. The number of times you use them over is also very important. After the 5th or 6th time, the quality of the tape is so awful, they're virtually useless for identification. The recommendation is no more that three times - store for a year.
