Woodinville's policy for using surveillance cameras in public places is a go after it was approved at Tuesday's city council meeting.

They approved the use of video cameras on public streets and in parks in May, in an effort to improve public safety.

The Woodinville Police Chief, currently Sydney Jackson, will determine where the cameras are placed in public (possibly at street intersections and public parks) although the cameras won't face the inside of any buildings. 

The locations will also be marked with signage that states, "This Area is Subject to Video Monitoring by the Woodinville Police Department." A list of video cameras and their whereabouts around the city will also be posted on the city's website. 

No one will be continuously monitoring the cameras and the footage will only be kept for 30 days unless it is needed for criminal case or other reasons.

Will you feel safer with these cameras in place? Why or why not? Tell us in comments.

Jeepers. This train derailed eh?? I hope the cameras assist, I am not sure they will, but it would be great. I dont feel they will take away from my want to be or shop in that area.

The question Stewart, is, who will they assist? The people or the government?! The cameras on both buses that received a grant from Homeland Security didn't work in the shooting downtown?! Odd. Did they not work on purpose or do they not work at all? Is it a strange coincidence or something else? :)

Only time will tell us that now Susan. Dont even want to touch the metro camera issue.
