Cowling Park Public Safety Video

park shelterVideo cameras have been installed near the shelter house and gazebo at Cowling Park located on N Main at Park Ave.

The cameras were installed in late July and are operational. The city administration and police division decided to utilize technology money from the police capital budget to initiate the newly created Public Safety Video Surveillance program in an effort to reduce vandalism and enhance the safety and quality of the city's main park. The program allows video surveillance in an effort to complement an anti-crime strategy, and to enhance public safety and security in public areas.  The software chosen for the video system allows for future expansion to enable surveillance of other areas that would benefit from the public safety program without purchasing additional licensing. The total cost including installation and software set up was approximately $6,600.  Specific usage guidelines of this policy are to prevent, deter and identify criminal activity, respond to critical incidents, assist in identifying, apprehending and prosecuting offenders, augment resources in a cost effective manner, and monitor pedestrian and vehicle traffic activity.
