Lawmakers Propose Installing Security Cameras On Long Beach


SKATEBOARDERS AND OTHER PEOPLE JUST BREAKING THE RULES. NEW AT 5:30, CBS 2’S JENNIFER McLOGAN REPORTS ON THE SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM. Reporter: WELCOME, SUMMER. BUT LEAVE FIDO AT HOME. ON THE LONG BEACH BOARDWALK DOGS ARE A NO-NO, SKATEBOARDS AND ROLLERBLADES, TOO. NEW SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS MOUNTED OVERHEAD ON LIGHTS AND POLES WILL SOON SHOW POLICE WHERE QUALITY OF LIFE LAWS ARE BEING BROKEN. IT’S ALWAYS A QUESTION OF PRIVACY. HOWEVER, I THINK IT’S A GOOD IDEA. Reporter: THE CITYWIDE SECURITY PROGRAM EXPANDS NOT ONLY WITH CAMERAS ON THE BOARDWALK BETWEEN LONG BEACH BOULEVARD AND NATIONAL BOULEVARD, BUT ALSO ENHANCING THE RING OF STEEL LICENSE PLATE READERS TO THE TUNE OF $260,000 OF THE TAXPAYER MONEY. IT WOULDN’T BE THE WORST THING TO USE TAXPAYER MONEY ON BUT I DON’T THINK IT NEEDS TONIGHT ONLY THING. Reporter: OTHERS SUPPORT THE IDEA OF THE TECHNOLOGY. CAMERAS COULD HELP POLICE SPOT PROBLEMS AT THE SURF, LOCATE MISSING CHILDREN, THEY ARE NOT TO SPY ON BATHING SUITED BOARDWALKERS. WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING THIS IS INFORMATION THAT’S GATHERED FROM THE CAMERAS ON THE BOARDWALK? THE INFORMATION WE USE FOR PUBLIC SAFETY PURPOSES TO MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE PREVENTING THINGS LIKE VANDALISM AND THEFT. Reporter: BOARDWALK SURVEILLANCE VIDEOTAPE WILL NOT RESULT IN TICKETS FOR QUALITY OF LIFE DISOBEDIENCE BUT CITY OFFICIALS SAY THE PRESENCE OF CAMERAS SHOULD BE A DETERRENT. IT’S ALREADY WORKING THEY SAY WITH LICENSE PLATE READERS IN PATROL CARS AND STATIONARY PLATES THAT CAN READ PLATES AND BOARDWALK CAMERAS WILL BE USED INTERNALLY AND ERASED. OFF SEASON YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO HAVE SKATES BOARDS AND DOGS. COME THE SUMMER THEN IT’S BUSY, I UNDERSTAND. Reporter: THE GOAL TO ADD SECURITY CAMERAS TO THE NEXT OF THE BOARDWALK NEXT YEAR. FROM LONG ISLAND, JENNIFER MCLOGAN, CBS 2 NEWS. AND THE OLD WOODEN BOARDWALK
