Fleege said the installation of 1,000 security cameras in that community has deterred crime and identified perpetrators. Additionally, they have significantly aided fire, police and emergency responders in day-to-day work. Fleege made a similar presentation to the city of Marshalltown.
Crime Stoppers believes security cameras would have the same major positive impact in all Marshall County communities. Crime Stoppers board member Mike Schlesinger emphasized the cameras are for security and crime-fighting, and are not “speed” cameras.
