College Park to install security cameras
A network of surveillance cameras in College Park will be activated in the next few days in an attempt to reduce crime in neighborhoods near the University of Maryland, WTOP reports.
College Park officials will soon be able to power up 15 cameras capable of tilting, panning, zooming and recording. The camera system will focus on the Old Town section of College Park and will be monitored by the University of Maryland police.
The move comes just a little over a week after four people, including three University of Maryland students, were stabbed outside a College Park bar.
