Video cameras approved for Burlington City Hall

Posted: Updated:

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A seven-camera video surveillance system has been approved for Burlington's City Hall, in response to worker safety concerns.

Police Chief Michael Schirling tells the Burlington Free Press the efforts are a response to threats against city employees, including "an ongoing issue with threats via email and over Facebook." He said police have investigated the incidents; no arrests have been made.

The cameras would likely hold about two or three weeks of recordings.
