The city is planning to install digital video security cameras at its 20 parks and playgrounds as a way to deter crime. The video will be transmitted to the police station and emergency dispatch building via radio signals. The system will be capable of recording 90 days’ worth of activity at each park or playground. Plans are to install equipment at one park as a test before extending it to all the locations. Meanwhile, the Recreation Department recently announced the schedule for its spring program, which begins in early April. Programs range from a toddler play group to gym time, ballet, and painting for children, and exercise classes for adults.
