Pineville installs cameras in park; wants more

Posted: Updated:

PINEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - The Charlotte suburb of Pineville has put up six surveillance cameras in a town park.

City police hope that businesses will pay for cameras to cover the downtown area.

The Charlotte Observer reported ( http://bit.ly/U6Z7GB ) that police said Monday that five cameras were put up at Lake Park and a sixth was positioned at a child care center.

The Pineville Police Department is monitoring the wireless cameras.

Town officials have not said how much the cameras cost.

Nearby Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have a network of more than 650 cameras. That network was widened shortly before the Democratic National Convention in 2012.
