Ridgewood police cars to get new cameras

MONDAY MARCH 3, 2014, 3:33 PM

The Village Council is moving forward with plans to replace existing on-board cameras mounted in Ridgewood patrol cars and upgrade the corresponding system at police headquarters..

Two resolutions were passed last week, one approving the purchase of two new mobile camera units and another authorizing the acquisition of the related camera-operating system. Both purchases were included in last year’s capital expenditure accounts and will be obtained under New Jersey’s cooperative purchasing program.

According to the council’s resolution, a pair of mobile camera units will be purchased in an amount not to exceed $12,554 from a Massachusetts-based firm. The cameras were described as newer, high-definition units, according to acting Village Manager Heather Mailander.
