Where are the cameras? That's what Councilor-At-Large Brian Gomes is asking.

He's looking for an explanation as to why there are no cameras installed at the intersection of Coggeshall St. and Acushnet Ave. During Thursday night's City Council meeting, he says responsibility lies with the city...

Gomes is requesting an explanation from the Mayor's Office and Dept. of Public Infrastructure Commissioner Ronald Labelle.

Two violent criminal assaults have occurred near that intersection over the past two weeks.

Gomes believes that if cameras were there, it would have aided police officers in quickly apprehending the suspects.
