The City of Columbus, Ind. is installing new security cameras around its Department of Public Works buildings and parking areas as a way to enhance security.
The decision to add the new security measure to the area new the Public Works buildings comes after a recent security assessment of the city property revealed the need for additional security, including surveillance cameras.
The Republic reported that the first question on the assessment was, "What are the location of your cameras?" and the response from the Public Works director was, "There are none." Columbus Mayor Jim Leinhoop declared that they had failed the first question.
The city has now decided to spend $20,235.84 on 20 new security cameras and other needed technology, which will include mobile viewing capabilities from a smart phone, laptop or other type of computer.
