More security cameras approved for Jackson Street garage

COLUMBUS, Ind. — The city plans to upgrade its security cameras in the Jackson Street parking garage starting this spring in an effort to deal with loitering.

The Columbus Redevelopment Commission approved Monday a quote from Staublin Technology Service Inc., based in Columbus, not to exceed $25,181 to replace 12 existing cameras and add 24 cameras in the garage to help improve security. Funding for the cameras will paid through the Jackson Street parking garage operating fund.

Several cameras within the garage have been failing over the last year, said Gary Thompson, vice president of parking garages with REI Real Estate Services LLC.
