Orange County Parks and Recreation Division Introduce Surveillance Cameras on Four Trails

WHAT: Orange County Parks and Recreation Division will install four new surveillance cameras on multi-use pedestrian trails this week. The West Orange Trail, Pine Hills Trail, Little Econ Greenway and Cady Way Trail each will have a camera placed in a strategic location with a goal of preventing after-hours activity.

The Parks Division worked with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office to determine suitable locations on the County’s trails, which close after sunset.

The solar-powered FlashCAM system takes still photos, with voice commands informing the person that the photo has been taken and they should leave the area. Each camera costs $7,000; size is 10” wide x 7 ¾” high x 9 ¼” deep at the base and 11 ¼” deep on the hood. Because the cameras are portable, each can be moved to various areas.

For information about the trails, visit

WHO: Orange County Parks and Recreation Division Manager Matt Suedmeyer will demonstrate the new surveillance camera and have it installed.

WHEN: Wednesday, October 9, 2019, 11:00 a.m.

WHERE: Blanchard Park at Little Econ Greenway parking lot
2451 N. Dean Rd.
Orlando, FL 32817
