On Monday night, the Evanston City Council voted to use federal grant money to install surveillance cameras in 15 problem areas in the town. The vote was 7 to 2 in spite of criticism that the cameras were overpriced and would not be effective. One of the criticisms was that the presence of cameras would give people a false sense of security. The sites named for camera installation are Church Street and Maple Avenue, the 1900 block of Jackson Avenue, Dodge Avenue and Lyons Street, Sherman Avenue and Davis Street (Fountain Square Plaza), Lake Street and Chicago Avenue (Raymond Park), Church and Sherman, Clark Street and Sherman, Sherman and Grove Street, Custer Avenue and Brummel Street, Maple and Clark, Dodge and Emerson Street, and Chicago and Church. The funds will allow Evanston to build its own infrastructure and connect the cameras to its fiber-optics network.
