First Red Light Cameras in NJ, are Security Cameras Next?

We’re still stinging from the red light camera implementation in NJ. Before we’re even able to adjust to the frustration of having to live with the red light “scameras” we may have another set of cameras to worry about soon.

Security Cam Full in Phillipsburg

According to this article, the town of Phillipsburg has installed two security cameras as part of a surveillance system that police will be able to view from their smart phones.

The town started considering installing security cameras after the shooting death of a gas station attendant where the surveillance system was not working.

To date, the town has spent approximately $13,000 on the new cameras.

Do you think these cameras will deter crime or just be more ‘Big Brother’ watching over us and waiting to fine us for some other transgression?
