The use of surveillance cameras to deter crime continues to a source of crime fighting for police agencies. Montgomery County Commissioner, Bruce Castor says, cameras are key in stopping crime and catching people who carry out acts of violence and drug dealing.
“I think that the municipalities are missing an opportunity if they don’t take advantage of the technology that’s out there. I remember we did a case on Marshall street in Norristown, where I put up a bunch of pole cameras and just watched the activity for a period of time.”
Castor, a former District Attorney, also acknowledges that police in patrol cars and officers walking the beat are also vital in fighting crime. Castor was a guest on the WNPV Program Security Advisors on Radio, which airs every Monday at 11:10 on AM-1440
