Salem supports advanced surveillance at state's Park & Ride facilities
The Park & Ride facilities are owned by the state and managed by Concord Coach Lines, which operates the Boston Express service out of Salem.
Earlier this week, Salem selectmen joined the other communities with Park & Ride facilities, including Nashua, Londonderry, Portsmouth and Dover in sending a letter in support of the house bill by a 3-2 vote.
Campbell said the bill raised issues concerning privacy, and noted that under the state’s Right to Know law, anyone from the public could put in a request for copies of the surveillance. Campbell said he has enough concerns with the government having access to the surveillance without adding the public into the mix.
“Without hearing the other side, I have enough concerns of my own,” he said.
“I want to protect the public to the extent that is humanly possible, and this is a public transportation center,” he said.
