New surveillance cameras will be installed in city hall.
The cameras will be installed in the interior of City Hall and will monitor the public reception areas.
Signs are already in place to advertise the change and that the cameras will be in use, said corporate administrator Michelle McIsaac.
“It is protective and looking forward, of course, to prevent unwanted behaviours,” she said. “It was suggested to us by the RCMP.”
Video surveillance in City Hall was viewed as an effective tool to improve the effectiveness of follow up if a situation in the building ever warranted it. The city has a network of surveillance cameras throughout the city and within many of its facilities.
