PERTH AMBOY – Resolutions: R-217-5/15 authorizing a contract with L3 Mobile Vison for the purchase of six (6) rear seat cameras under State Contract NO. A81311 in an amount not to exceed $31,192.20.

R-218 – 5/15 authorizing a contract with Patrol PC for the purchase of six (6) Patrol PC Rugged Fixed Mount Computers under State Contract No. A81300 T0106 in an amount not to exceed $30,208.00.

R-219 – 5/15 authorizing a contract with East Coast Emergency Lighting for the purchase and installation of four (4) sets of emergency lighting  and equipment in new marked police vehicles and two (2) sets of emergency lighting and equipment in the new unmarked police vehicles under State Contract No. A81336 in an amount not to exceed $36,949.68.

Acting Police Chief Larry Cattano stated that there is a policy in place for regular standard recordings. “Patrol cars have a rear camera. Certain things trigger the camera. It’s turned on when we are transporting prisoners. It’s required by law that any new vehicles – any vehicle whether it be a patrol car or anytime we interact with the public (have cameras installed).”

Council President Lisa Nanton asked how long the data is stored.

Cattano answered, “After a year, it’s purged.”
