Cornwall ON – The City of Cornwall just received grants totaling $100,597 to install close circuit cameras around town.
The idea of course is to promote safety and assist law enforcement and ultimately to save the city some money, but now we all have to remember we’re being watched locally. Close circuit technology is a mainstay of most metropolitan centers across the world and is a valuable tool for watching what goes on.
The funds come via the Civil Remedies Act of Ontario. IE Funds taken from the proceeds of crime so I guess Cornwall had its share coming from all those seizures.
