Many communities have been adding more security cameras to their downtown areas in an attempt to decrease crime. The Downtown Community Improvement District of Cape Girardeau is hoping to install an additional camera at the corner of Broadway and Middle Street. Executive Director of Old Town Cape, Marla Mills tells KZIM KSIM the benefits of increased security.
The Cape Girardeau Police Department in partnership with the Downtown Community Improvement District recently purchased and installed cameras on each end of Main Street in early fall. They serve as bookends to the area, as their reach connects in the middle.
