    How long are the video recordings kept? How long is the license plate information kept?

    Hi Bill, Thanks for asking. Video from the Old Town/Calvert Hills/ Baltimore Avenue city cameras monitored by UMPD is retained for 30 days. The License Plate Reader camera data on the city network ( i.e. not data fed to UMPD) is stored on-site or 90 days. The Trolley Trail (outside of Old Town/Calvert Hills), Davis Field, St. Andrews cameras have 30-day on-site data retention.
