New security cameras to quell city violence in the East End of Toronto
TORONTO — “The people have spoken” and violence has ended.
On Tuesday, June 1, city councillors voted 8-0 to put cameras in the East End. The cameras, said city councillor Joe Cressy, would “provide much needed surveillance, record the police to enforce safety and reduce the likelihood of violent incidents and crime.”
However, there was a loud booing from the crowd.
“I would never have done something like that,” said Cressy. “I can’t express what I’ve heard.”
In May, the mayor announced a 10-stop, 11,000 square-foot community policing plan that would include cameras and surveillance cameras. The cameras would help Toronto’s police and social service agencies monitor streets, public spaces and the streetside for people and violent crime.
A community policing plan
The police-funded policing plan was funded in part by $3.5 million from a public transit funding formula designed to help ease budget cuts. Since the cameras were being installed, there have been fewer violent incidents in the area as a result.
But for some residents, the cameras are too expensive, difficult to use, and their use is already controversial.
“How long will we be policing all over Toronto?” asked Toronto resident Robert Blodget세븐 럭 카지노t. “We already have one police-officer.”
Cressy s넷마블 바카라 시세aid the cameras will allow for a more “realistic” policing strategy. The plan also will be transparent in that the city will track the locations, names and addresses of any cameras they place across the city.
“I have no doubt this policy will reduce the level of violence, reduce the number of officers required and give more oversight over the officers as they work on this important program,” Cressy said.
City officials have said they expect the cameras will have an impact in reducing crime by 40 per cent to 60 per cent as a result.
The budget for a camera system is $17 million.
The city spent $12 million on the project in 2014, an amount that includes more than $3 million that has already been spent and the cost of any equipment, training or other supplies.
City councillors voted unanimously to put the cameras into place on June 9, 2013.
The 카지노 로얄 다시 보기plan is still on the drawing board and could undergo a complete review after the 2016 budget.
The cameras are being installed from July 2014 to Februar
