ALBANY, GA (WALB) - You'll soon be on candid camera in downtown Albany. Albany city commissioners voted Tuesday to purchase and install a wireless video management system.

The $319,000 system will provide 15 cameras in Downtown, including six in Riverfront park.

The video will be transferred to the 911 center for monitoring and will be recorded and stored for 30 days. 

City Manager Alfred Lott said, "I think it helps with the quality of life and helping people feel safe downtown. That would give us public safety capability, enhanced public safety capability throughout the city."

If police have problems in certain parts of the city, they can move cameras to those locations and monitor the area for crime.
