Company Details Findings into Etna Township Security Camera Questions

Nearly two months after Trustee President Rozland McKee was discovered hiding cameras, the company looking into the incident has some explanations.

Nearly two months after Trustee President Rozland McKee was exposed concealing cameras under the pretense that they were recording audio, the company looking into the incident has some explanations.

“In this case it’s my belief that the audio was turned off,” a representative from Whereas, Tuesday night, Wolfe Intelligence informed the trustees of Etna Township.

Although the surveillance system can activate the audio, the WhereWolfe representative disputes that it did so when Board President Rozland McKee hid them last month, despite the fact that he claims it was possible. He was locked out of some clips, though, so he was unable to draw that conclusion for all 12 cameras.

Before McKee removed the surveillance system on Oct. 1, Trustee Mark Evans saved those clips to his phone. 22, citing legal advice.

“It wasn’t a full report,” Evans remarked on Wednesday.

Evans notes that WhereWolfe did not request to see the videos on his phone or to remove the backup SD cards that were still in the cameras.

“Have those been looked at and retrieved,” Tuesday, Evans questioned a representative for WhereWolfe. “No, they have not,” the man replied.

WhereWolfe says that’s because of “cost control.” After it was decided to refer the case to the Licking County Prosecutor, the board authorized State Security to conduct an investigation for a fee of $920.

According to the representative, digital forensics revealed Evans had access to the security system on October 1 for 21 minutes. 15, six minutes on 83 minutes on October 17 and Oct. 19, which was the same day McKee could be seen hiding from the cameras.

Evans claims that he was in the system when it was installed in early October, where he was purportedly setting it up.

“Should Etna Township citizens be concerned with how things are happening here and what should be happening out there – things aren’t getting done,” 10TV’s questioned Evans Bryant Somerville.

“Very much so,” Evans said.

According to him, the township ought to prioritize union negotiations, road department equipment needs, development, and unpaid bills. Many of which, according to him, haven’t been discussed for weeks or months.

“Not only are our residents suffering, but also our employees cause it makes their job harder,” he said.

In an email to 10TV Board President Rozland McKee says, in part, “We have been transparent, let me be clear. I won’t consent to anyone watching someone else in our township with the help of our security cameras. In my capacity as a trustee, I support this.”
