SSPD "multi-use room" opens today

As announced by Comm. Wirth at Tuesday's council meeting, a new "multi-use room" will open for use by the Saratoga Springs Police Department at 11 a.m. today in Jefferson Terrace.

The room, a former polling station, was donated by the Saratoga Springs Housing Authority. It has been equipped with video surveillance monitors, to view camera activity at the terrace, and can be used for training and interviews.

According to Wirth, the room will not be staffed full-time and suspects will still have to be brought to the station at 5 Lake Ave for booking and detainment.

A couple of points brought up at the meeting:

Comm. Ivins asked if there were cameras in the room to tape interviews. Wirth said there are not at this point, but they could be installed.

At Monday's agenda meeting, Mayor Johnson asked about using the room to monitor activity outside the new indoor rec center, which is a stone's throw away from the terrace. Wirth said he would look into making that possible.

Is the mayor already afraid that vandalism is going to occur to his new "Palace" in "HIS" old neighborhood?
