Larimer County Cameras Set To Help Deter Panhandling
In Larimer County, for the second year in a row, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office has put video cameras out around the county to deter panhandling in heavily trafficked areas.
According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan, it is part of an effort to limit where and when people are allowed to ask for money.
Officials say they decided to redeploy the cameras recently because of warmer weather, which often leads to an increased number of panhandling in certain areas.
Larimer County commissioners in 2013 passed an ordinance that made violations punishable by fines up to $1,000.
