Maryland County Tables Bill to Require Cameras in Mall Parking Lots


The county council for Anne Arundel County in Maryland has dropped a bill that would have required security cameras in mall and shopping center parking lots. Leaders for the county that includes the city of Annapolis say they want to see how a similar requirement carries out in a nearby county.

The Baltimore Sun says the council decided June 27 to table the bill until this fall after getting input from Baltimore County on a similar bill that passed there in March. The Baltimore County measure calls for some mall operators to install cameras and for a task force to study security issues at malls.

“If they are going through the same research, it makes sense to follow their lead,” said County Council Chairman Ronald C. Dillon Jr., one of four sponsors of the bill, according to the Sun.
