Wake County Video Project
Chris Creech, Information Technology Manager for Wake County Sheriff's Department who gave the CJIN Board a presentation on the Video link between the NC State Fairgrounds, RBC Center, and Carter-Finley Stadium to the Wake County Dispatch Center. The system that Wake County has deployed is a streaming video system that is recorded - fully accessible not only in the dispatch center, but also on laptops and handheld devices in the field. The video that is recorded is treated in the same manner as a 911 call to the dispatch center. The video is kept for several months before it is deleted or destroyed. However, if there is an incident that is captured on the video, it is segmented and treated as evidence in a case. At this point it has to have a chain of custody to ensure that it is not lost or destroyed.
