BRIDGEPORT — Police surveillance equipment sits on Baldwin Plaza, just outside the Main Street courthouse, which has been met with mixed reactions by business owners in the neighborhood with some saying it makes the area safer while others say it creates a bad perception.
The surveillance unit's solar panel and flashing blue light can be seen from across the park. A pole protrudes skyward from it with four dome security cameras on top. The unit’s wheels allow Bridgeport police to easily move it to other parts of the city, which it does based on “current police strategies,” Scott Appleby, Bridgeport's emergency management director and police spokesperson, said in a statement.
