Salinas’s Hartnell College is installing security cameras in an effort to minimize car thefts in their parking garages. The cameras are expected to deter thieves from stealing cars off the campus lot, which school officials say occurred twice last year. The 28-cameras are part of a larger safety plan for the school, which includes internal security locks, and external notification. The security cameras will be placed on all the entrances and exits of the Central Street campus parking garage, and will provide facial and license plate recognition.
