Downtown Bryan Police Cameras Now On

Security cameras are now keeping an eye on Downtown Bryan.

City officials say Thursday, recently purchased cameras installed in the downtown area were activated, meaning Bryan Police have a new method to keep tabs on would-be criminals.

Bryan's city council approved the camera purchase in late 2008. Their cost was just over $100,000.

Authorities say those cameras could have helped with the murder of Dale Ellis, the homeless man killed this week on the north end of downtown. However, they were not yet in use.
