CCTV Annual Report - 2007
In 2006, the Council of the District of Columbia amended regulations governing the use of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) by the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) in Title 24 District of Columbia Municipal Regulations (DCMR), Chapter 25. As a result of the Council’s governance and MPD’s comprehensive policies and procedures, the District of Columbia’s CCTV system is the most tightly regulated system of its kind in the Nation. The CCTV program meets the criminal justice video surveillance guidelines adopted by the American Bar Association.
This document fulfills MPD’s responsibility, assigned by Title 24 DCMR, Chapter 25, Section 2508.6, to report to the Mayor and to the Council on the cameras’ effectiveness at preventing, detecting, and solving crime since their installation.
