Multiply that by 16 cameras and you'll find that that equals somewhere around 8-9000 vhs tapes that we have, now instead of paying our worthless employees to just sit there and get high, they will have to dub tapes every shift as well.
Edit, it doesn't seem like a smart thing to do, but at the current rate of almost 10 bucks per vhs tape for copying services, for the cost of dvd's and a recorder, I could care less how long it takes to get them all done. And i'll be able to print still pictures if anything does happen, something i'd have to have police take care of now.
