Security camera installed on Rehoboth boardwalk

From the Associated Press: Rehoboth Beach Police Chief Keith Banks says he hopes a surveillance camera installed on the town's boardwalk will prevent crime.

Banks says the camera on a light pole is near the end of Wilmington Avenue, an area vandalized after a pavilion was built. City Commissioner Stan Mills says the town added landscaping at the pavilion to keep people from loitering.

A Sussex County Council grant paid for the $5,800 camera which can show multiple angles and allows police to watch footage from their cars or office.

Mills says the camera could help search for missing children or monitor severe weather.
