Madison Police use surveillance cameras to monitor parks | Crime
In response to vandalism and other criminal activity in city parks, the Madison Police Department acquired video surveillance cameras that will be placed in several parks and greenways, including Rainbow Mountain.
The graffiti problem began about a year ago, and since then, it has practically popped up at parks around town. Police said an arrest has been made for one case, but they hope these cameras will catch other culprits.
Police said this is part of their effort to make city parks and recreation areas safer for citizens, and assist in prosecuting people who violate city ordinances.
