Surveillance Cameras to be Added in Johnson City
There are going to be more eyes on the streets in Johnson City following the approval of the installation of three surveillance cameras in the Village.
The Village Board has approved crime deterrent devices for installation on Main Street and at Floral Park.
The one camera for the park and two for Main Street are costing the Village close to $50,000 and are expected to be operating in the next several months.
Mayor Greg Deemie says its hoped the surveillance program can be expanded to additional streets and all the Village parks in the future.
The system being installed in Johnson City is the same as the system currently being used by the City of Binghamton.
