Falls Follows Buffalo with Surveillance Cams [VIDEO]
Niagara Falls Police will follow Buffalo’s lead installing 26 surveillance cameras in areas considered as high crime on the city’s East Side in the new few weeks.
“We’re going to let people know that, that general area is now under camera surveillance 24-7 by the police department,” said Chella.
“We may not be able to react quickly, but it is being taped for any evidentiary material we can collect for prosecution,” said Chella.
Chella tells us property crime rates are on the rise. The department has been taking notes on the successful use of surveillance cameras in Buffalo.
“What we’ve tried to learn from Buffalo is the placement and what we can garner from the cameras, and obviously in the last couple weeks you’ve seen the success of the Buffalo surveillance cameras,” said Chella.
