IT in a Box: Video Archiving

Does your police department rely heavily on squad car and body camera video recordings? With IT in a Box's fixed monthly cost, cities no longer need to buy additional expensive storage for video. That’s right! As your squad car and body camera video recordings continue to grow at a rapid pace, your storage costs do not change.

City requirements for video archiving grow more and more immense. For example, the requirement for many cities to capture, record, and store police department body camera video has drastically increased the amount of needed storage space. 

Overall, there’s just too much risk to community services, public trust, and legal liability to neglect a city’s electronic storage capabilities and underlying information security related to video records. Below are some features of IT in a Box that help address these concerns.

No more buying additional expensive onsite storage for video. With IT in a Box, you can now keep your most recent videos onsite for quick access while we archive your videos offsite following state records retention policies (such as for police department body camera video).

As the quantity of your police department squad car and body camera video footage continues to rapidly grow, your storage costs do not change over time.

Because police department squad car and body camera video footage captures confidential, private, and sensitive information, you need to secure the footage. No excuses. Old servers or software are a risk. Only authorized users should access the data. IT in a Box applies information security best practices to your video storage.

Our engineers have extensive experience handling Open Records Requests and quickly retrieving video files for municipalities. That experience allows us to work alongside you to handle these kinds of requests quickly and efficiently.

Even better, under a service such as Sophicity’s IT in a Box, any labor for a record request is included. That means cities can leverage us for this work—with no additional fees and no extra invoices.

As part of IT in a Box, we provide cities with onsite data backup storage for quick data recovery and unlimited offsite data backup storage for disaster recovery. That includes archiving your video following state records retention policies—making sure your video is available even in case of a disaster such as fire, flooding, tornado, and even ransomware.

Municipalities are capturing greater amounts of squad car video and enormous amounts of body camera video footage. Because of greater public safety scrutiny, more sophisticated body camera technology, and new laws passed each year holding towns and cities accountable for retaining this footage, municipalities are understandably growing more worried and concerned about their video archiving capabilities.

One of the key issues with this technology is storage costs. Learn about four ways you can keep body camera video storage and archiving costs low and predictable for your police department.
