Wow, NYC is really getting techie tranformed! First with the NYPD purchased segways to patrol popular tourist areas, then they added touch-screen monitors to city cabs, and now they are introducing large surveillance cameras all over Manhattan! According to ABC News, the NYPD hopes to have 3,000 public and private security cameras to track terrorists and criminals. With night vision capabilities, tilt, zoom and rotate, these cameras don't come cheap as some of them cost a whopping $60,000. Cameras in other cities like London have proved to be beneficial, especially during the 2005 terrorist attacks where British officials were able to track the perpetrators with CCTV footage, and many other cities are using similar technologies. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think these cameras are an invasion of privacy?
