There's an emotional debate tonight in one Colorado community. After a school installed security cameras in the student restrooms, students and some parents want to know why.

It's happening at Windsor Charter Academy High School. Karen Morfitt taking a closer look at why those cameras were installed, and Karen: students, parents, and officials all weighing in on this one.

Yeah Karen, and those who are against this say anytime there is a camera anywhere inside these doors it raises a privacy issue, while others- including school officials- say if the cameras are just pointed to the sinks, there's no problem.

Security cameras are going up just about everywhere, and usually it's done with no questions asked. But these, at Windsor Charter Academy, have everyone's attention.

They say that they're not actually facing the toilets.

This whole thing is very silly to me.

It is OK to disagree.

School officials say the cameras are for security purposes, and after consulting with law enforcement they're certain they do no violate privacy for two reasons; the stalls are from floor to ceiling and the cameras point only to the wash areas. The installation has some students protesting and often covering the cameras themselves.

I just still think there's a better way to handle it.

Some parents say if it keeps students from doing something they're not supposed to and adds to safety, then they're all for it.

As long as they're not pointing into the stalls, which they're not- they're pointing at students washing hands- I don't see it as a problem.

Others, like Trevor Garrett, don't argue against more security, but say this is crossing a line.
