Virginia Surveillance Cameras Still Not Functioning
Weather to Blame in Camera Operating Delay
It’s been a few months since surveillance cameras were installed in downtown Virginia, but they still aren’t up and running.
Virginia Police Chief Dennis Benz blames the severely cold weather for the delay.
He says electricians are working on getting the cameras going, but can’t predict when they’ll start recording.
In July the city council approved $270,000 to install 61 cameras throughout town with the hope of cutting crime.
