The Manager, Enterprise Information or the Privacy Contact Officer (PCO) in consultation with the Director, Operations & CFO and the Security Coordinators, may approve the copying of a recorded incident which is then set aside in a secure cabinet. These circumstances include:
- where there is footage of an incident with the potential to result in a breach of Library Regulation 2010, or is subject to legal proceedings or a civil claim
- as a result of a reasonable request from a solicitor (pending a court order for the release of the footage).
Video recordings of a specific incident may be released to the NSW Police Service or other law enforcement agency subject to the execution of a search warrant or other legal process and only with the approval of the NSW State Librarian & Chief Executive or delegate, and in consultation with the Manager, Enterprise Information or the PCO.
