The City of Fredericton announced on its website that it has partnered with the Fredericton Police Force and community businesses to install cameras around the city. The cameras were installed in Dec. 2022.

According to the city, “The initiative involves replacing existing city-owned, end of life community web camera infrastructure with an integrated camera system that serves multiple internal and external uses. The goal is to support a safe, inclusive, and inviting community with a public safety lens.”

“Community cameras” will be used to monitor traffic, transportation, pedestrians, and river flood levels. Some cameras may be streamed for tourism purposes. “Public safety” cameras will be used to enhance police abilities with additional situational awareness. Signage will also be posted as a criminal deterrent.

Cameras have also been installed on Fredericton Transit buses with more cameras to come around the city. Businesses and organizations wishing to participate are invited to contact Fredericton Police. More details, as well as existing camera locations, are available on the city’s website.
