For each City park where cameras are installed, SPD shall annually provide a summary of crime statistics for the preceding calendar year and a comparative analysis of historical crime data covering a period of at least five years for inclusion in the report. SPD shall also document how many crime investigations benefitted from the use of the cameras in the preceding calendar year. The report shall also include a qualitative discussion of public perceptions of safety within the viewable area of the cameras. DPR will be responsible for completing the qualitative component of the report. Public input for the qualitative component shall be collected by DPR staff via an annual survey, public meeting, or other appropriate means identified by DPR staff and approved by the Chair of the Council's Parks and Seattle Center Committee.
