Work Underway to Install Security Cameras in Chester

Keeping an Eye on Crime: The Chester security camera initiative moved from concept to reality recently with workers installing poles, fiber-optic cable and the cameras themselves in the Sun Hill section of Chester.

Partners in the initiative including (left to right) Delaware County Councilman John McBlain, Rite Aid District Manager Jim McWilliams, Crozer-Keystone Health System Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Patrick Gavin, Chester Mayor John Linder, Rite Aid Senior Manager of Investigations Lauren Linsenbach, Widener University Provost and Senior Vice President Dr. Stephen C. Wilhite and Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan hold uninstalled cameras while a worker installs a camera at 15th Street and Ridley Avenue in Chester on Thursday. The cameras for the first phase of the initiative are scheduled to be fully installed and operable by the end of July.

Last October, the Riverfront Alliance of Delaware County received a $750,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation for the initiative. The grant was backed by an additional $410,000 from Widener ($350,000), the city of Chester ($50,000), and Rite Aid ($10,000).
