Covington County Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Feb. 8.
The city of Collins will soon be installing surveillance cameras through the nonprofit organization Project NOLA.
Aldermen voted unanimously this week to place six cameras in high-crime areas to deter or help solve crimes.
The cameras will be monitored 24 hours a day and they can detect sounds, like gunshots.
They’ll cost the city around $2,500 and the city will pay $60 each month for monitoring fees.
The city of Hattiesburg also decided recently to install Project NOLA cameras.
