Toronto’s Police Chief Bill Blair wants to keep some of the equipment bought expressly for the G20 Summit, particularly security cameras and so-called long range acoustic devices.
„We have some requirement for CCTV cameras in certain neighbourhoods that are experiencing some violence and difficulty,“ Blair said Monday outside a Toronto Police Services Board meeting.
The police acquired 77 new cameras for use downtown for the June 26-27 G20 Summit in the downtown core. The cameras had to come down after the summit.
