Six Nations Elected Council is looking to install cameras in Ohsweken, in addition to speeding up the creation and implementation of an anti-bullying task force in order to increase community safety.
“Community safety is always a priority,” said elected Chief Mark Hill, as council discussed the possible installation of surveillance cameras at the village’s main intersection at Chiefswood Road and Fourth Line Road.
An anti-bullying task force that has been in the works for over two years is also expected to meet with council at next week’s general council meeting as it looks to finalize its terms of reference.
The issue of cameras is in tandem with bullying concerns in the community, along with the broader of issue of community safety, said Chief Hill.
The issue of community safety was thrust into the spotlight this past spring after a young Six Nations woman was a victim of a horrifying assault that shocked the community in its level of brutality.
