Victor-based Integrated Systems has inked a contract with Elmira to install a surveillance system in the Southern Tier city’s streets.
The contract, which would complete the first phase the Chemung County city’s surveillance project, is to be funded by a $120,000 community block grant under the federal government’s economic stimulus program, said Kelli Ramsdell, Elmira director of community development.
Integrated Systems’ contract calls for it to install moveable cameras in high-crime neighborhoods. The cameras can deliver a clear image of a car license plate from a block away and would let police monitor and record activities range from remote locations, officials said.
Areas covered by the surveillance network include neighborhoods that have seen the biggest jump in crime reports over the past two years, city officials said.
