|SECURITY CAMERAS IN THE FUTURE|
PUBLIC SAFETY TEAM MEETS 6-19-13 LMS
Security cameras were a topic of discussion at the city’s Public Safety Team meeting on June 12. Team Chairman/City Councilman Ken Hill told the June 19 meeting of the Salmon City Council that the need for a security camera system as well as the possibility of including the Main Street area in the system’s coverage, was discussed. The team along with Police Chief KV Felker and Police Officer Terry Stratton reviewed other potential camera locations as well as the value of having such a system. Research into locating funding within this year’s budget is being explored in order to expedite installation.
Hill said additional assistance in enforcing animal control laws along with investigation into cases of animal abuse was also addressed by the Public Safety Team. He said the Lemhi County Humane Society is willing to pay tuition costs for two of its board members to attend the National Animal Cruelty Investigation School in Westminster, Colorado. Hill said the board members would pay their own travel costs and there will be no expense to the city. He said that the Sheriff’s Office and City Police Department both feel that having two trained individuals to assist in cases of animal cruelty and abuse would be a great help. The City/County Prosecutor has been consulted and agrees the trained assistance would be very desirable.
The next Public Safety Team meeting is set for July 10 at 5:15PM in the Salmon Valley Center meeting room.
