Dillingham installs surveillance cameras

AP | March 7 2006

The small southwest Alaska town of Dillingham has installed some 80 surveillance cameras.

The cameras come thanks to a more than 200-thousand dollar grant from Homeland Security.

They were installed around the town and at the port.

Dillingham police chief Richard Thompson came up with the idea of applying for the grant money. He says the cameras may have the added benefit of putting an end to the drinking, deaths and drug dealing that goes on at the port.

Not all Dillingham residents like the idea. Some are outraged. Freeman Roberts, a barge captain, says the cameras are an invasion of privacy.
