Michigan Considers Mandating Surveillance Cameras at Private Businesses

Some Michigan lawmakers are considering whether surveillance cameras or other security measures should be required at certain businesses following the disappearance of 25-year-old mother and gas station night clerk Jessica Heeringa.

Police said there was no surveillance video at the Exxon Mobil gas station in Norton Shores where Jessica Heeringa was working when she disappeared Friday. There were no signs of a struggle.

Democratic state Rep. Marcia Hovey-Wright of Muskegon, Republican state Sen. Goeff Hansen of Hart and Democratic state Rep. Collene Lamonte of Montague tell the Muskegon Chronicle that they'll explore ways to get a law in place to protect convenience store employees.
