Orange County Parks and Recreation Division installed four new surveillance cameras on multi-use pedestrian trails. The West Orange Trail, Pine Hills Trail, Little Econ Greenway and Cady Way Trail each will have a camera placed in a strategic location with a goal of preventing after-hours activity.
The Parks Division worked with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office to determine suitable locations on the County’s trails, which close after sunset.
The solar-powered FlashCAM system takes still photos, with voice commands informing the person that the photo has been taken and they should leave the area. Each camera costs $7,000; size is 10” wide x 7 ¾” high x 9 ¼” deep at the base and 11 ¼” deep on the hood. Because the cameras are portable, each can be moved to various areas.
