Default How long do stores keep camera logs?

How long does the average store keep there security camera logs? I heard from a somewhat unreliable source that most stores keep logs for two weeks, some longer. I'm particularly interested in convenience stores and locations that offer Western Union.


Thanks.

most places use computerized systems now where the cam records to a hard drive. so even if they deleted the file it would always be recoverable. as long as they had that hard drive at least. so it really depends on the seriousness of the crime i guess.

Even places that have a great reason to record everything (i.e. banks) record over shit after 30 days. You would be surprised how many places still use analog tapes to record camera footage though, which can be kept as long as there is space to store them.

assuming the store has switched to new electronic video storage (video feed automatically saving to a hard drive) id take a guess of around a month. depends on the security system. if its something pretty professional, odds are they store keeps a 1-2 week log, but the data also gets sent to a larger server on the security providers end to keep footage from farther back in case its needed.
and if they are living in the dark ages (still using old tapes to record on) than probably 1 or 2 weeks (but theres very few places that still use that)
i know the security system in my high school kept a 2 week log. after 2 weeks, it would start overwriting the old stuff. (and thats not just a guess, the VP loved me and let me play with the cameras, and she showed me how the whole system worked)


your best bet would be to try to find out what security system they use, and go from there. call the company, say your interested in their services, and ask anything you wanna know about it.
