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.

The cameras will not be monitored, but special software allows a police officer to access the camera whenever there’s a problem.

Video can also be used as evidence.

The cost is $40,000.

City council approved the expenditure Monday night.
