Security Cameras to be Installed in Liquor Stores?
Posted on Aug 15, 2012 4:28pm PDT
Due to the high risk of robbery in Georgia liquor stores, some people are considering passing a law that will require most if not all of the liquor stores in central Georgia to install security cameras. This would be a precautionary measure or insurance policy if you will, for law enforcement officials to have a better chance of catching any criminals stealing from these establishments. This way footage is available as evidence in the event of a crime. There many also be potential inspections every month where the police would go in and inspect the cameras to ensure that they are functioning properly.
On Monday they held the first city council hearing on the matter in Bryan County, Georgia. The idea is being considered only for the liquor stores that sell alcohol packaged to go. More information will be known soon as they are voting on this proposal next month.
Stealing is against the law and a conviction will come with severe penalties and lasting consequences. If you are facing
criminal charges in Georgia you must act quickly,
contact Attorney Booker as soon as possible.
