City Buys Police Cameras for Downtown

CANTON, Ohio (1480 WHBC) (Nov. 21, 2016) – The city of Canton will be installing ten police cameras in the downtown area soon.

Half the cameras will be used to monitor the perimeter of the downtown Special Improvement District.

Video can also be used as evidence.

The cost is $40,000.

City council approved the expenditure Monday night.
