PETERBOROUGH-The Peterborough Police Service CCTV Camera Program is now up and running in the downtown core of the City of Peterborough.
12 cameras have been posted along with signage notifying residents and visitors that they are entering an area that may be monitored by CCTV cameras.
“As a Service dedicated to public safety, we believe these cameras will be another tool in deterring and solving crime in our community. The video will be used to help solve crime after the fact,” says Chief Stuart Betts, Peterborough Police Service. “There is a procedure in place that limits who and when video can be accessed.”
For more information on the CCTV Program, we have created a “Frequently Asked Questions” section on the Peterborough Police Service website.
The cameras were paid for through a grant from the Ontario government.
