Update on Public Safety Camera System (PSCS)


On June 18, 2019, City Council provided staff direction to:

  • Obtain bids for the Public Safety Camera System (PSCS). 
  • Present Policies & Procedures for Council consideration.

Staff attained a proposal from Convergint Technologies Inc., the high scorer in the Pilot Program, to design a (PSCS) for Phases I - III.  

Phase I includes 5 Main Arterial Streets, Phase II includes 14 Regular Streets, & Phase III includes 3 Major Parks.  

Convergint Technologies will take 4-6 weeks to develop the design of Phases I through III..  

The next steps are: 

  • From this design, camera integrators can bid on installation and maintenance of cameras with a Request for Proposal on city Website for 30 days.
  • Policies & Procedures governing the use of the (PSCS) have had considerable public review and will be submitted for Council consideration.
  • Once bids are received, obtain Council approval for a (PSCS) integrator contract to install Phases I-III of the (PSCS)
  • Dovetail work once the Fiber Optics are installed (separate construction) in May or June of 2020.
