Perth getting closer to switching on surveillance cameras
Back in August of this year, the Town of Perth decided to install surveillance cameras at several town facilities that have been targeted by vandals.
In 2019 alone, vandalism has hit town coffers with $12,000 in damages.
On Tuesday November 5th, Director of Community Services Shannon Baillon updated council on the progress of installation and told Lake 88 the 17 cameras are in place.
“They’re not operating yet,” she said, explaining that procedures and training have to be in place before they flip the switch.
“But they are installed at the four sites,” said Baillon who added that there are our cameras at Terrace on the Tay, three at Crystal Palace, four at Last Duel Park, and six at Conlon Farm. “So they’re installed ready to go it will be up to us, once I’m comfortable that we’re trained properly and the few people that will have access to the footage have been on how and what they’re allowed to, once we have all that in place we’ll start operating them.”
Baillon says she doesn’t have a timeline yet for when they will be turned on.
