The local police, with endorsement from the Midland Police Services Board, are hoping to introduce a CAMsafe program in the detachment area.

“Ultimately, it is aimed at creating a database of residential and commercial security cameras that will act as a resource for police while investigating offences and crimes,” said acting detachment Commander Insp. Todd Pittman during a police services board meeting on Sept. 20.

Owners of security cameras, closed-circuit TV systems and doorbell cameras would register for the program, helping to create a map of camera locations throughout the region. This map would include where cameras are located and the directions they are facing.

  1. Cameras are needed in a number of spots. Hope that they are movable around town.
    King St. going north from Hwy 12 I have been passed by people doing at least 90 km./hr.

    Then there is Christine Dr. the High School kids have been speeding as much as 90 km/hr. back and forth. My neighbor stopped one of them last week and scolded them 2 separate cars. One went by our house at 8:05 am on Monday doing about 90. on their way to school.
