Eighth District Councilwoman Cindy Bass spearheaded the surveillance effort:

“We can have a camera system in every playground and rec center in Philadelphia within the next three years.”

Bass and the nine other district council members have agreed to earmark one-tenth of their district capital dollars for the effort in each of the next three years. The cameras, she says, will be for recording only:

“Hopefully at some point we’ll be able to get live monitoring. I don’t believe that that’s the system that they’ll have in place for right now.”

Still, Bass believes this will be a deterrent to rec center crime and violence:

“We want to make sure that we get the surveillance equipment in there as quickly as possible, so people know this is not the place.”
