Will Thomas of Fox 5 News reports on the planned installation of 6 crime cameras to be placed across busy parts of the city. One will definitely be going up on Old Towne Gaithersburg, and I suspect others will be installed at Rio/Washingtonian and Lakeforest Mall.
City officials are currently getting pricing bids on a system of six cameras that would be placed in some of the busiest areas for pedestrians such as the Olde Towne section of the Gaithersburg.
I was pretty upset by the initial thought of invasion of privacy. If you remember, we also reported on the installation of speed cameras in Gaithersburg.
However, the local business owners interviewed in this Fox 5 report seem to be pretty happy with the idea. Only time will tell how the public will receive them.
What do you think about the new cameras? Where do you think the other 5 cameras will be installed?
