FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney is getting a firsthand look at the surveillance system in Frisco, Texas, while he’s in town for the Football Championship Subdivision title game.

Mahoney tells KFGO radio (https://bit.ly/1TJw19Y ) that Frisco has a much more vigorous surveillance system than does Fargo. It includes video cameras throughout the city and in school classrooms.

Frisco’s police department also has a mobile unit that plugs into the surveillance system so video can be monitored from the field. It will be used at the Toyota Stadium during Saturday’s game between Jacksonville State and four-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State.

Fargo now has half a dozen surveillance cameras downtown. Mahoney says if it’s determined that more might be needed, the City Commission wouldn’t consider it until next year.
