Prince George County, MD Mandates That All Convenience Stores Have Security Cams
Overnight convenience stores and gas stations in Prince George County, Maryland are now required to have drop boxes and security cameras. The safety directive, passed by the Prince George County Council, mandates that retailers with late-night hours (open between 11 pm & 6 am) install three security cameras over the next three years: one above the entrance door, one above the cash register, and one overlooking the parking lot. All three cameras must be able to record 24/7, according to the bill's stipulations.
The new regulation is an attempt to curtail crime at these establishments, with many local businesses showing their support the measure. In 45 days, this new measure will take effect.
