VPSN – Surveillance & Security Meeting

No Comments  |  Leave a comment

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is a major component of the City of Surrey’s new crime strategy – mirroring a push by the Vancouver Police Department to install surveillance cameras throughout city. Are we edging closer to a police state as result?

The VPSN’s Surveillance and Security Working Group will be meeting on Monday, March 5 at 7:30pm. The purpose of the gathering will be to review recent developments in local security and policing issues, and to look at potential advocacy and project work connected with this. Last year the VPSN started an ambitious project try and map the city’s surveillance cameras – and this year we want to ramp this project up and work on additional neighbourhoods. At the same time, a number of additional ideas have been proposed.

The meeting is open to all and will take place at the Coordinator’s house near Francis St. and Commercial in East Vancouver – please email us for address details. For more information, or to RSVP, contact Micheal at info [at]
