After concerns about safety at Eastlink Centre, the facility has plans underway to improve security.
Operations Manager at the Eastlink Centre, Richard Fletcher presented a detailed report to the city Tuesday.
The centre wants to upgrade its 93 cameras to HD quality and the cameras would be placed in the aquatics and hot tub areas.
Fletcher says he hopes the project will be complete by the end of the year.
“We would have loved to have them done last year, but we had a lot of projects on the go that we needed to complete first. We are hoping we can get on this fairly quickly and have it done by the end of 2017.”
The urgency to enhance security springs from an incident last year of a man exposing himself to a child at the centre.
“The stuff that comes along with having a public facility is just being able to focus in on some of those people and when we require authorities to come in and have a look at faces and things like that we definitely want to make sure the quality is up to snuff.”
At a city council meeting in December, the mother of that child told councillors that the RCMP had found the event on camera but the man’s face was too blurry.
