New Foundation Aims to Fund High-tech Cameras in Wilmington

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- A new foundation is aiming to raise private funds for the installation of state-of-the-art cameras along some of Wilmington's most dangerous streets.
    
Wilmington lawyer Morton Kimmel revealed the plan Tuesday in Newport, saying 37 business partners will soon pledge donations to supply motion-tracking, high-definition cameras across Wilmington's East Side community.
    
Kimmel has pledged the first $5,000 toward the over $250,000 project, a pilot program of the First State Police Foundation. The newly launched foundation brings together local corporate and civic leaders to fund public safety projects.
    
Dave Tiberi of Emergency Response Protocol, the company that'll install the cameras, says the video can be sent directly to officers' patrol cars.
    
Kimmel says the cameras helped lead to seven arrests within a week of being installed at Delaware State University in Dover.
