    RUTLAND The city is discussing the idea of using security cameras to monitor its most crime-ridden neighborhoods.

    One landlord suggested the idea to the Board of Aldermen on Monday after one of his properties was the site of a home invasion.

    Cam Johnston said he has no problem with cameras monitoring people walking down the street.

    The matter was referred to the Public Safety Committee with almost no debate.

    City Police Chief James Baker said a surveillance program in residential areas would have to be a community decision.

    He said the city already had a number of privately owned security cameras around businesses. Baker said vandalism dropped around the downtown train station after cameras were installed there.
