Brookhaven, GA, July 1, 2016 – The Post Reports – According to Brookhaven City Councilwoman Linley Jones (District 1), community video surveillance cameras may provide assistance in solving crimes to City Police. Jones says new technology allows Brookhaven communities to install video cameras that are accessible by the Brookhaven Police Department.
“Video cameras, purchased and maintained at the expense of the neighborhood, can be installed at entrances or other strategic locations,” Jones said in an email. “Neighborhoods may then choose to provide video access to the Brookhaven Police Department. Such community video sharing allows Brookhaven PD immediate access to security footage in the event of criminal activity.”
Jones notes Brookhaven Police will not routinely monitor neighborhood security footage unless a criminal investigation is in progress. “Installation of security cameras for neighborhoods must be privately funded and will not be paid for by the City of Brookhaven,” she adds.
