The City of Moorpark will soon update and expand its network of security cameras in an effort to deter crime.
On Nov. 6, the City Council passed a resolution to use $22,000 to hire a security camera consultant as part of an eventual $225,000 plan to update Moorpark’s surveillance system, according to the Moorpark Acorn.
The plan involves updating 22 cameras currently in use at Arroyo Vista Recreation Center, Poindexter Park, the police services center and the train station, as well as adding an additional 15 cameras around the city, according to the report.
Moorpark was recently listed in a study as the 7th safest city in California.
Capt. Stephen Wade, Moorpark’s police chief, spoke at the meeting in favor of the plan, according to the Acorn.
