Pompano Beach wants more surveillance after officer's death

Pompano Beach officials are calling for more video surveillance of businesses that stay open 24 hours.

Broward Sheriff's Office Sergeant Chris Reyka was fatally shot last month in the parking lot of a 24-hour convenience store that didn't have surveillance cameras. Reyka's killer is still being sought.

Mayor Lamar Fisher says the city should require indoor and outdoor surveillance at all 24-hour establishments. Some financial assistance would be available to business owners. City commissioners have yet to vote on the idea.

A 1992 state law requires surveillance only at convenience stores that sell groceries and gasoline between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
