Moncton City Council has agreed to install 33 video surveillance cameras at 11 locations along St. George Street.

At Monday’s regular meeting, council unanimously decided to spend $90,000 on cameras after consultations with city bylaw enforcement and RCMP.

The cameras will be installed on existing city infrastructure on St. George from Vaughan Harvey Boulevard to King Street which is a stretch mainly home to various businesses and services for the homeless population including two nearby shelters.

Staff said it would take about six to eight weeks to acquire and install the equipment.

Cameras have already been installed along Main Street.

A staff report indicated the presence of video surveillance can help deter crime and will provide an additional tool for public safety and to obtain evidence of inappropriate or criminal behaviour.
