CLEVELAND - Residents and merchants along Warner Road in Cleveland are getting extra security in the form of wireless security cameras.
The ten wireless cameras will be positioned along the largely commercial strip to foster a safer district for merchants, customers and residents according to city officials.
The cameras are not the first security cameras to go up in the city of Cleveland.
There is a camera outside of Janelle's Restaurant at the intersection of Shaw and Saint Clair in Cleveland. The cameras went up a few months ago and restaurant owner Jy D Reed said crime is down.
"We were vandalized when we first opened up and right now I feel comfortable that the cameras here help capture whoever is doing the crimes," said Reed.
Wayne Drummond is Commander of Cleveland's fifth district.
"In the case of a crime committed, hopefully it would be captured by a surveillance camera and then it is also a deterrent," said Drummond.
