St. Joe police to use new security camera system

The St. Joseph Department of Public Safety will be installing new security cameras at the stairs leading down from the bluff, and outside city hall. The upgraded system will help officers more quickly find missing persons, and find criminals who commit vandalism and other offenses.

ST. JOSEPH — The St. Joseph Department of Public Safety will purchase new security cameras to enhance the safety of residents, officers and the thousands of visitors who come to the city every year.

As part of their consent agenda Monday, commissioners approved the contract with Presidio Networked Solutions Group, of Caledonia, Mich., for $49,086 for 12 cameras that will be installed at the bluff stairs and the parking lot behind city hall, along with accompanying software.
