Johnson declined during that interview to discuss which new locations would receive the cameras.

Cameras will be placed at the following locations:

  • Middle River Middle School, 800-block of Middle River Road.
  • Eastern Technical High School, 1100-block of Mace Avenue.
  • Catonsville High School, 500-block of South Rolling Road.

  • Sparrows Point High School, 7400-block of North Point Road.
  • Hawthorne Elementary School, 100-block of Kingston Road.
  • Lansdowne High School, 3900-block of Hollins Ferry Road.
