DEWEY BEACH, Del. (AP) - The Delaware shore town of Dewey Beach plans to install eight new security cameras as early as Christmas.
Len Read, co-chair of the town's public safety task force, says the cameras are a "preventative measure more than anything."
The Daily Times of Salisbury reports the town council voted to spend nearly $100,000 for a camera system.
Police Chief Sam Mackert says a state law enforcement grant, a donation from Springbank Foundation and surplus revenue from the Winter Gala are also helping cover the cost.
