City Police to Receive $400,000 for New Surveillance Cameras

By Staff


surveillanceSyracuse’s Common Council voted 8-1 to allow city police to install up to  25 additional surveillance cameras in high-crime areas, Oct. 13.

The Syracuse Police Department will reportedly receive a $400,000 technology grant from the state Dormitory Authority to cover the cost of the new cameras.

Councilor Jean Kessner was the only “no” vote for the measure.

The Washington Square Park area; the Richmond Street/Wall Street area; and the Upper Onondaga Park area on the South Side, are all in line to receive the new cameras, the council ordinance stated.

There are currently 91 cameras placed in Syracuse neighborhoods, according to reports.
