Security cameras going up at West Point park

By The Associated Press

WEST POINT — Four security cameras have been installed at Sally Kate Winter Park in West Point and more are planned.

The Daily Times Leader reports that the city’s Water and Light Department announced in December the cameras would be installed along with wireless Internet access.

Water and Light Department Superintendent Dwight Prisock says the city wants to put cameras along the entire Rails to Trail walkway.

Prisock says Sally Kate Winter Park is the most visited park in the city.

He says the cameras will help combat vandalism and other crimes.

He says the cameras allow police and other city officials to zoom in on anything suspicious taking place in the park.
