Belleville Police Service and others across Ontario are being invited to partner with the Ontario government to install expanded closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems in community hotspots known to police to deter criminal behaviour.

The presence of CCTV is not only a deterring factor but also provides useful evidence in police investigations when suspects charged with wrongdoing are captured on digital recordings used in courts by prosecutors.

Belleville already has a select number of CCTV installed in the Downtown District but is now eligible to apply for its share of the $6 million Ontario CCTV Grant program announced Monday by Premier Doug Ford in his daily briefing with reporters at Queen's Park.
