HARRISBURG, DAUPIN COUNTY—The Harrisburg Police Department will be increasing the city's security by adding more undercover surveillance cameras.
The city's Week and Seed Program has been battling illegal dumping for years. With trash complaints piling up, the hope is an increased number of cameras will help catch people leaving old tv's, couches and mattresses all over the city.
"There's been a number of arrests made in a result of the cameras, but certainly we hope as well it's a deterrent," said the coordinator of Weed and Seed Jason Rissler.
Make people think twice about dumping and committing other crimes.
"I guess it's a good thing because of the crime in the area or whatever, I guess it will deter the guys who are committing crimes," said Harrisburg resident Kenny Watson.
The city is also in the process of getting $100,000 in federal money to get surveillance equipment in their police cruisers.
