Cameras suggested as a possible solution to city's vandalism issues

The issue of closed circuit cameras was once again on the minds of councillors at Monday night’s council meeting.

At the meeting, council voted to consider cameras as a possible solution to the city’s vandalism problem. The move comes in light of information the city received about a $1 million provincial pilot project which will see cameras placed in high-crime areas in Vancouver, Surrey and Kelowna. Council hopes that if they decide to implement the cameras, they may be able to participate in the pilot project if it is expanded.

The possibility of using cameras in high-crime areas of the city was suggested by councillor Larry Evans at an October 27th council meeting. The cameras are just one of the solutions proposed by council to combat the city’s vandalism problem.
