Brentwood Council Considering Crime Cameras

City Council considers placing crime cameras in busy intersections
BRENTWOOD—The Brentwood City Council is considering installing surveillance cameras and license plate readers to help reduce crime in the area. The council is currently discussing placing either license plate readers only or license plate readers and moving cameras in major intersections in the city.

 

The council will be considering installing pan-tilt-zoom cameras which have the ability to zoom in on an incident and follow it with its lens. With the new cameras and license plate readers, officials will be able to gain valuable information on subjects.

 

For example, with license plate readers, officials will be able to determine what time a vehicle passed through an intersection. The system allows them to enter in stolen vehicle license plates and if that vehicle passes through the intersection, police officials will have the information quickly and easily.

 

The biggest intersection in the city, Brentwood Boulevard and Balfour Road, would cost an estimated $318,000 to install cameras and license plate readers. The council believes that the result would be worth the cost as the new installations would help police catch criminals and spot illegal activities. Brentwood Mayor Bob Taylor has already said he supports the new plan.

 

The Neighborhood Improvement Committee, which is behind the issue, is going to be moving with a recommendation to the City Council in either December 2013 or January 2014.
