2.1. The purpose/objective for installing these cameras: The camera is intended to provide situational awareness, deter vandalism/theft and forensic value to incident investigations at the Gerald McGavin Rugby Centre.
2.2. The necessity for the use of cameras in this area: The camera is needed for assistance in in reviewing any incidents in the Rugby Centre. The Rugby Centre is relatively secluded, and unoccupied for long periods each day, and the camera is needed due to a history of vandalism and theft. The installation of a security camera in the area most prone to thievery and vandalism will assist in incident investigation and deterrence.
2.3. What less privacy-intrusive alternatives to the use of cameras have been considered and why they have been rejected: Facility staff checking at the Rugby Centre frequently but cannot ensure complete supervision and coverage. The location of the Rugby Centre in a low-traffic area results in long periods when the facility is not monitored. The installation of recorded cameras that are not actively monitored except during situational awareness and during an emergency was determined to be the least intrusive method of ensuring coverage in each area.
