The Town is in the information gathering stages and would like input on how residents feel about the Town installing Video Surveillance Cameras on public property in key locations.

 

I have to ask 'Why'? Has something happened to prompt a need for cameras? Or is this a solution In search of a problem?

Have incidents occurred that justify need for surveillance cameras? I'm not aware except for recurrent auto breakins here at Hopper Creek, on Private Property. Several of us feel they may be useful here. If things are happening in Town would be useful for us to know what and where I think, to be aware of issue.

Devon is asking a valid question.

I will offer a possible alternative using surveillance cameras. There are 7 intersections in the town, that if equipped with Automatic license plate recognition surveillance cameras, could record every vehicle that enters & leaves town. If a crime was committed, and the time, or the approximate time was known, those cameras might be able to provide valuable information.

The license plate data collected could be sorted in a variety of ways that could help solve the crime. This Wikipedia link explains how they work:

Surveillance cameras seem a bit overkill for our small town. Is there some crime wave going on?

It is safety and peace that every citizen demands and I think use of https://technosoups.com/benefits-for-students-using-information-technologies-in-the-process-of-learning/ in the public places will make the town much safer. Personally, I am in favor of installing Surveillance cameras in al key points.
