St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells reported to media outlets that at least three new surveillance cameras have been installed in St. Lawrence County over the summer to help law enforcement. Wells told 7 News that the cameras, or "plate readers," are part of a larger surveillance system funded by federal Homeland Security and state grants. The weather-resistant cameras were reportedly used during the abduction of two Amish sisters from Heuvelton.

Results will be posted Monday, Sept. 8.


St. Lawrence County District Attorney Mary Rain says her office will no longer reduce driving while intoxicated charges.

She said the new policy is aimed at reducing the number of drunk drivers on the road.

Do you support this change in policy?

Do you think it will further discourage drunk driving?
