Iowa City group looking to install cameras on Ped Mall

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The Downtown Association of Iowa City is planning to install eight cameras on the Ped Mall to help with security this spring.

The cameras would cost $37,000, $21,000 of which has already been raised.

The rest will come through private donations.

The Downtown Association says it would be part of a three year pilot project.

The police supports the project but law experts say a privately run camera system could be a problem for invasion of privacy laws.
