You lie. Chief Roy sent me an email stating that he recorded over them. The court ordered for these videos to be held and protected. They would show who exited the FFD that night and at what EXACT time. It would of shown all FFD members returning. That video showed something that they wanted hidden, hence its DESTRUCTION!<quoted text>
What Mr.Lynch knows and doesn't post is that the cameras only cover the parking area of the employee's vehicles, the interior locked lobby to bet buzzed in and in front of the apparatus bay doors.
They do not cover all areas around the station.
The camera system's video is saved to a locked system that is serviced by an outsider contractor from NH. They are the only ones that have access to the video. This is in order so that people cannot make accusations that any city employee discarded any video. This keeps the city from liability in these cases. It protects the city and all city employees from liability.
The city has thought ahead of time and is not stupid when it comes to video surveillance on city property. They knew to have all systems locked and privately serviced. The same goes for all recorded phone calls. That too is recorded and locked into a digital machine serviced and accessed ONLY by the NH private contractor in order to protect the city.
The contractor is not connected in any way to any agency but they had to pass intense Homeland Security checks so they can offer their services. They would be the ones held liable if there was a missing video or a recorded phone call.
What happened was the FPD hid ALL the initial reports and the FFD destroyed a court ordered held tape most likely because two Roys were on that video.
