Chances are you have seen one of
the mobile crime cameras around Toledo, but how can you get one in your
Toledo Police say the cameras are
set up for special events, placed in neighborhoods where they're requested, or
where there is a lot of crime. One camera has been set up at Airport Highway
and South Avenue for the past week.
"We had a few incidents around
that area and some neighbors have been asking us to put one there," explained
TPD Sgt. Joe Heffernan.
Nadia Paradiso is the manager at
Bambino's Pizza across the street from the camera, and she says she's thankful
"It definitely makes us feel
safer inside here with that out there," she said.
The mobile cameras are monitored
by officers and give them a constant look at what's going on in a neighborhood.
"If we have hot spots that flare
up in certain areas, be it juvenile crime or problems locally, we'll put these
cameras up and they have a good impact on eliminating crime or deterring
criminals around the area," Sgt. Heffernan said.
Police say they are happy to take
suggestions from Toledo residents on where a camera should go next. If you're
concerned about crime in a certain part of town, send Toledo Police a message on Facebook, tell your
local block watch, or give police a call.
