DANVILLE — The search continues for security cameras at Danville Memorial Park.

Village Council members listened to Debi Brokaw and Brian Leis of Rock Solid Investigations LLC about cameras for the park and municipal building at their meeting Monday. Council is looking at adding cameras to those two locations in an effort to deter vandalism and thefts. Council has heard proposals from several companies and Rock Solid is the latest to bring their information.

Brokaw and Leis said they would submit a proposal by the next meeting.
