Washington, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — The City of Mobile is taking steps to strengthen security at its community centers to safeguard citizens utilizing these facilities. Pending Council approval, the City of Mobile will install new security systems at Harmon, Springhill and Dotch Community Centers. The camera feeds will be streamed to Mobile Police Department’s Joint Operations Center, an intelligence-based initiative designed to protect public venues.
“We want our citizens to feel safe and welcome in our recreation centers,” said Mayor Stimpson. “We are taking every step possible to ensure your experience is both relaxing and entertaining.”
Last year, MPD surveyed every community center to recommend implementable strategies to secure the area. These recommendations included new security systems and lighting installations. In addition to preventing crime on City property, these extra precautions are reducing crime in the surrounding areas as well.
“I encourage all of our citizens to take advantage of our many community centers,” said Stimpson. “From athletic centers to career development courses to dance classes, each center offers something for everyone.”
On Tuesday, the Mobile City Council will vote on the contract to purchase the three security systems from CRV Surveillance, LLC for $24,184.
