Surveillance cameras to be installed in downtown Houston

Posted on December 1st, 2010 No Comments

The  city will be installing 250 to 300 more surveillance cameras at downtown intersections to help catch both traffic and non-traffic related crimes.  The Department of Homeland Security is sponsoring the installation which began over the summer.

City officials say the cameras that have already been installed have helped catch several car thieves.  In addition, they hope that in the future law enforcement officers will be able to survey a crime scene before approaching the situation.

The first fifty cameras were installed throughout the city around the George R. Brown Convention Center, Minute Maid Park, Discovery Green Park and around the theater district.  Cameras are expected to be added around Reliant Stadium, city parks and the Port of Houston.
