Guidelines approved for Conn. city surveillance cameras


By Jeff Morganteen

STAMFORD, Conn. — It took nearly 18 months, but city lawmakers last week approved a manual that sets guidelines and limitations on public surveillance cameras police and city officials plan to install throughout the city.

The procedural manual went before the Board of Representatives last week and legislators passed the 24-page document with a 28-6 vote. The manual spent 18 months in the public safety committee, where it underwent a lengthy and at times contentious editing and drafting process. A small number of city representatives opposed the installation of cameras, citing possible abuses and privacy concerns, and others accused them of trying to hold up approval of the manual.
