Ocean City eyes boardwalk cameras

February 17, 2009 5:20:51 AM PST
Store owners in the Jersey Shore town of Ocean City want security cameras on the Boardwalk. They've taken the request to city council after a vandalism spree last month damaged several of their shops.

City Council President Scott Ping says the cameras could make sense in a time when the city can't afford to have as many police officers on the street.

But, he says there's one problem: It's not clear whether Ocean City has enough money for them.

Another Jersey Shore resort is also planning to install cameras. Wildwood's project would cost $380,000.
