Should I Restrict Recorded Video Access For My Operators?

In dedicated security operations centres with large numbers of camera (500+) is it considered best practice to restrict operator's access to recorded video? For example, they are only allowed to the most recent 5 minutes recorded history.

The logic being you want operators to focus on the present and you want to restrict access to recorded video for a number of reasons.

In scenarios where access to recorded video is needed, this task is hand-off to another team that has the access permisssions to review the full recorded video history.
