Reedlands neighbors call for more license-plate cameras after three home break-ins
A cohort of Reedlands residents is asking the town to install two additional license-plate-reading cameras in their neighborhood in response to three summer break-ins.
The neighbors made their appeal during the public comment period of the Sept. 6 Town Council meeting, saying the cameras could help deter or catch potential thieves while acknowledging they wouldn’t necessarily close any gaps in the town’s current camera system.
Under the state’s open-meetings laws, town councilmembers can’t discuss items that are not on the meeting’s agenda. However, Police Chief Michelle Jean has scheduled a community meeting for 6:30 p.m. Sept. 18 at Town Hall to discuss potential options for improving safety — though some 40 years of crime statistics show Tiburon is the safest it has ever been.
