AV Surveillance Committee

SAP 29.01.03.M1.28 describes the requirements for Surveillance Equipment at Texas A&M. Equipment must be approved by the Vice President and Associate Provost for Information Technology (VPAPIT). A committee with cross campus representation has been established to review surveillance equipment installations, and make recommendations to VPAPIT. 

Approval Process

To begin the approval process, read the AVST Operational Standards. Next, complete the AVST Request Form (editable PDF or MS Word template) and submit it to with a floor plan that shows camera locations and field of view. After the committee has reviewed the form, a liaison from the committee will work with you on any questions or concerns from the request. 
Note: Begin the approval process at least one month prior to desired order date.

Considerations for Surveillance Equipment Installations

  • Never monitor showers, bathrooms or residents' rooms.
  • Do not install equipment to monitor people. Instead, use surveillance equipment to protect material objects.
  • Post signs that clearly notify individuals that a location is under surveillance.
