Piedmont Hoping To Curb Burglaries With Crime Cameras At City Limits

PIEDMONT (CBS SF) — The town of Piedmont is hoping to curb crime by putting cameras at all points of entry into the small city.

The signs on the borders of Piedmont are small, but village of just 11,000 people is known as one of the wealthiest in California, and a rash of recent burglaries have put residents on edge.

Now Piedmont, which is entirely surrounded by Oakland wants to put cameras at all its 30 street-entry points, to trace robbery suspects.

The city of Tiburon was able to cut the burglary rate in half after cameras were installed at both points of entry.

Piedmont residents are hoping the cameras will do the same for their town.
