New surveillance system at the Skate Park


A new high resolution surveillance system has been installed to monitor the D-Town Plaza Skatepark.

Justin Tokarchuk, director of ICT (information and communications technology) for the city of Dauphin, says the upgrade was done at the request of the city’s protective services committee, which liaises with the RCMP.

“They’re hoping it will reduce crime and vandalism and quite frankly it’s also good for parents to be able to take a quick peek and see what’s going on there,” he adds.

Tokarchuk strongly believes that having a surveillance system at the skate park will deter crime and make it a safer place.

“We will provide images to the RCMP when requested,” he added.

According to Tokarchuk, funding for the project came from the City of Dauphin budget.

Anyone interested in seeing what’s happening at D-Town Plaza Skatepark can do so by visiting the city website.

The City encourages any crime or suspicious activity to be reported to the Dauphin RCMP by dialing 9-1-1 or 204-622-5050 in an emergency, or 204-622-5020 in a non-emergency .
