Police install public safety camera throughout the city 

PRPD media release Public Safety Camera System initial deployment

Cameras will be recording 24-hours a day, seven days a week

– The Paso Robles Police Department has recently installed a public safety camera system in various locations throughout the City.

The cameras will enhance the Police Department’s presence in these locations and will help in identifying suspects involved in crimes, the police say. The cameras are clearly identifiable by flashing blue strobe lights, which will allow the public to notice the cameras to increase the Department’s crime prevention efforts. The cameras were paid for through the Board of State and Community Corrections grant in the amount of $62,500. The Paso Robles City Council approved this pilot program on Oct. 18, 2016.

The cameras will be recording 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and can be monitored in the public safety communications center as well as on mobile devices by the Police Watch Commander. A policy regarding the use of the camera system has been developed to balance public safety concerns along with protecting the community’s constitutional rights, the police say.

The camera system has been deployed in the following areas:1-PRPD media release Public Safety Camera System initial deployment
