Just in time for the Super Bowl, the EPPD has purchased a camera trailer that will allow department personnel to look at what’s happening in the location where the camera is set up. Officers, investigators and dispatchers can look at the video real-time and can also review previously recorded footage.
The camera’s debut will take place this week at Winter Park where NFL teams will be using the facility. After the Super Bowl the camera will go wherever the need is greatest – Eden Prairie Center, parks where car break-ins have been occurring, large community events, etc.
Not only will the camera provide valuable information to the department, it will also work as a crime deterrent, letting potential criminals know that we are watching.
