County Installs Cameras To Watch Cameras

County Installs Cameras To Watch Cameras

Prince George’s County in Maryland now has surveillance cameras that will watch surveillance cameras. The residents of Maryland are tired of speed cameras, so some people have been destroying them. The county hopes the new cameras will slow down the damage.

So far, six people have damaged speed cameras. In one instance, a person pulled a gun and shot the camera. On another occasion, someone cut off one of the four legs of the camera. On July 3, a person lit a camera on fire.

“It costs us $30,000 to $100,000 to replace a camera,” said Prince George’s County Police Maj. Robert V. Liberati. “That’s a significant loss in the program. Plus it also takes a camera off the street that operates and slows people down. So there’s a loss of safety for the community.”

There is already one camera watching a camera. By the end of the year, the county hopes to have about a dozen more.

Liberati says the plan is all about public safety, not an infringement on privacy or a tactic to increase revenue.
