Surveillance cameras

Emsworth officials are considering placing cameras at the borough's busiest intersection.

One of the issues considered at the Oct. 10 borough council meeting was placing a camera to monitor Route 65 at the intersection with Camp Horne Road. The cameras rely on the internet to store footage.

Ohio Township Police Department has even offered to pay for the borough's first two years of internet licensing to be able to use the cameras for the years 2019 and 2020. The cameras would be funded by money received by the police department through the asset forfeiture program.
