Two Roy’s Rants thumbs up! Reading is being proactive on crime and blight! Make sure you read the rest of the article, especially Pottstown Borough Council and leadership!
City Council on Monday agreed to expand Reading’s security camera system, awarding a $650,000 contract to New York-based Let’s Think Wireless to add 20 or more cameras to the 27 the city already has.
Cameras in the first phase are mostly downtown, but the new cameras will be installed in other areas of the city, Police Chief William M. Heim said.
The new cameras also will connect wirelessly to City Hall monitoring stations, rather than via the fiber-optic links used by the current cameras.
“What we have so far has worked very well,” Heim said.
