A contract has been awarded by the Selma City Council to Selcom and SkyCop Security systems to install a citywide surveillance system.
Despite some disagreements raised at a recent city council meeting, the decision to award the contract came after months of consideration from the city.
“We (as a city) now have a tool that will help secure our city, protect our citizens and connect local law enforcement,” said Selcom owner Rick Williams. “The Council made a great decision choosing a locally owned company to provide this service, thank you. We love the city of Selma and are eager to get this new tool for law enforcement up and running.”
Selcom proposed 44 full-color, 24/7, high-resolution video cameras and 14 high-speed license plate capture cameras with a live E-crime center.
SkyCop owner Greg Knuckles expressed his approval at the contract, emphasizing its impact on local law enforcement.
“The law enforcement community continues to value our approach both as a deterrent with our flashing blue lights and, more importantly, the value of full-color video day or night," he said. "We congratulate Selcom and the City of Selma.”
