Friends of Galvin Park group funds cameras
Story Released: Wilmington News Journal
Galvin Park has a whole new layer of security thanks to the efforts of the Friends of Galvin Park (FOGP), which has been working to secure donations and funding from grants for the past year in order to purchase two high-resolution security cameras.
The cameras were recently purchased after Chief Ron Cravens of the Wilmington Police Department and Jermaine Isaac, Park Superintendent, studied both community need and available equipment.
The funding goal was met this past spring by FGOP, and Verkada Security cameras were purchased and installed.
Many organizations helped make the camera purchase a reality through the award of grants or donations, including the City of Wilmington and the Parks and Recreation Department, Antique Power Club (Corn Festival organizational body), the Wilmington-Clinton County Chamber of Commerce Safety Council, and donations from private citizens.
Without the generosity of these groups, the purchase of the cameras would not have been possible.
