Surveillance cameras for Jupiter community

May 19, 2008 02:03PM

The homeowner’s association of a 1,000-unit single-family home
development in Jupiter — called the Shores — is considering
installing surveillance cameras at their Longshore Drive entrance. The
cameras would photograph every vehicle that enters the residential
development, helping police officers identify suspects when a crime is
committed. The vehicle registrations are all automatically entered into
Florida’s crime database. The security system would cost each Shores
homeowner $40, and the residents would split the $4,000 annual
maintenance fee. The community’s security plan depends on the city
council’s approval of installing a computer link with the police
department.
