DO NOT RUN LARGER THAN 2 COLUMNS -- Twenty cameras, remotely operated by deputies, will be watching out for the safety of residents in the University Community neighborhoods. The cameras will be mounted on utility poles at various locations. The cameras are in a tinted dome; a box, emblazoned with the Sheriffís Office star on three sides for added visibility, will sit atop the cameras. Each box will be fitted with an amber strobe light to draw attention to its purpose and position.
The camera project is called Eye On Crime. The project has been about two years in the making. By this summer, the cameras will be operating, allowing deputies to keep an eye on trouble spots, monitor streets for emergency situations and give residents a better feeling of safety. Photo from HCSO
