Nearly $100,000 approved for Brookfield Police video surveillance
The Brookfield selectmen approved $99,720 for a video surveillance system.
The surveillance system had been pulled from the 2019-2020 capital request. Since then the main server and one of the outside cameras have failed. The server had an emergency repair. The existing system is six years old.
This purchase will come from the Police Outside Services Fund. The Board of Finance must also approve this.
The new system features Avigilon cameras, software, servers, switches, monitors, keypads, workstation, backups, as well as installation and labor costs.
First Selectman Steve Dunn said at a recent selectmen meeting that this is part of a coordinated plan to have all of the video surveillance systems in town to feed into the police department.
