Endicott Police to Utilize Cameras in Crime Fight
Police in Endicott are planning to use surveillance video technology in parts of the village.
Mayor John Bertoni said cameras have been ordered for the police department. The devices may be used in the Washington Avenue area and in the Union District.
Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, Bertoni said the cameras would be "strategically placed" as police focus on specific areas of concern.
Unlike video cameras now in use in sections of Binghamton and Johnson City, the Endicott cameras are not being installed in fixed positions.
Bertoni said the six cameras being acquired by the village will be movable so they can be deployed in locations where they are needed by the police department.
Endicott Police Chief Patrick Garey confirmed the department is planning to utilize cameras but declined to discuss how they will be deployed.
