In light of a recent child abduction incident, New York state Sen. Jim Tedisco has unveiled legislation mandating the installation of security cameras at all entrances and exits of state parks, campgrounds, and recreational areas.

The proposal follows the kidnapping of a 9-year-old girl from Moreau Lake State Park in Saratoga County. Although she was reported missing on a Saturday, she was found two days later, with a suspect now facing charges.

Tedisco, who oversees the Senate Parks and Recreation Committee, expressed that had security cameras been installed earlier at Moreau Lake State Park, the child might have been located more swiftly. The proposed cameras would capture license plates, vehicle details, and images of individuals entering or leaving the premises. Previously, Tedisco played a significant role in initiatives related to missing persons, such as introducing pictures of the missing on Thruway toll tickets in New York.
