Moreno Valley Plans To Use Private Security Cameras for Boosting its Citywide Video Surveillance

Moreno Valley is planning to enlarge the reach of its video surveillance camera program spread throughout the city. It expects to use private security cameras belonging to private businesses so that the police can have more locations to keep a watch over criminal activities.

News sources reveal that already Moreno Valley has 260 cameras installed at rooftops, parks and intersections and these cameras are offering live feeds to the police department under a program which was initiated in the city two years back. For the time being, the city has plans to kick-start a six-month pilot program, which will unite cameras owned by five businesses to a specific system that permits the police department to obtain live views.

As per revealed by officials, the cameras owned by the city have done valuable service by helping the police in around 200 investigations over the past year. However, officers disclose that these investigations also include a shooting that occurred last month. Moreno Valley’s technology director Steve Hargis states that if people want to share views with officials, then there are other cameras that are already installed. He adds that sharing of views will help in boosting surveillance in the city.
There is a monitoring room at the police station that permits officers to examine the videos on different screens and switch to different places whenever required. The cameras can easily zoom in and out and this will permit the police to read license plates and have a look at the faces of people.

Steve Hargis discloses that many of the Inland cities are equipped with video surveillance programs but he doesn`t know about nay city has used private cameras. However, he says that nationwide Santa Ana, St. Paul and Washington D.C are among the cities that make use of business cameras.
