 Would security cameras help stop crime in downtown Bend?  City manager Eric King says they are watching how the program works in Redmond and may consider it for some places in Bend.
 
King was a recent guest on 1110 KBND's Your Town. 
 
 
On Tuesday, the Redmond City Council voted unanimously to put security camers in local parks and other public places that seem to attract crime.  The total one time cost will be close to 120 thousand dollars.
 
 
"WE'VE TALKED ABOUT CAMERAS IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA BETWEEN MIRROR POND PLAZA AND DRAKE PARK. THERE TENDS TO BE A LOT OF CRIMINAL ACTIVITY -  BUT THE SPACE IS NOW LEASED TO CROW FEET AND SO THE HOPE IS THAT   POSITIVE ACTIVITY- PUSHING OUT the NEGATIVE activity..."
 
King says another trouble spot is in the parking garage, where vandals strike on a regular basis.  He says the key to effectively using security cameras is monitoring them and then enforcing the law.
