The ordinance would authorize the police chief to deploy safety cameras in the downtown area to enhance public security.

The ordinance contains procedural requirements for deploying the cameras including public notice and an opportunity for public comment.

The ordinance contains limitations on the deployment of the cameras. For example, the cameras must be conspicuous and shall only capture images that can be seen from public places where there is no reasonable expectation of privacy.

The full language of the ordinance will not be on the ballot, Boone County Clerk Wendy Noren said.
