Parent Wants Video Surveillance at PHS
Portland resident Carol Schiller, a parent of two children enrolled in the Portland Public Schools, has asked the Portland School Committee to consider installing a digitally-based video surveillance system at Portland High School.

Schiller sent an email to Committee members citing problems that she says exist at Portland High School, including fights, vandalism and loitering on school property. According to Schiller, installing a video surveillance system is a proven method for reducing these types of problems.

Falmouth Public Schools will be installing a digital video surveillance system this summer.
Schiller also distributed information to the Committee from Advance Technology, a Scarborough company that specializes in security systems. The Committee will discuss the proposal at its April 26th meeting.

Man Shot on Neal Street
A 19-year-old man was shot in the leg at an apartment at 165 Neal Street on March 31, according to Portland Police.
Two men reportedly broke into the house at about 3:30 AM, demanded money, and assaulted the man and another man.
