Hey, kiddies! You like being on television? Well, you’re going to get a lot more chances soon, since apparently the entire City of Philadelphia will eventually be blanketed with 24/7/365 coverage.
Fortunately for the city’s more paranoid residents, there’s a good chance they won’t work at all. So, really, that sort of means the city is going to put up lots of non-functioning cameras, which is even better.
Philadelphia police say a pilot program that has located cameras as various locations in the city is having an impact on crime and police say they eventually hope to have the ability to place cameras anywhere around the city. [...]
“We want to establish a city-wide wireless network that will give us the ability to put a camera virtually anywhere in the city we need to; whether it’s for major events, homeland security, crime issues, or quality of life issues.”
Experts predict the city-wide wireless network to be finished in time a few weeks before the city-wide Wi-Fi network is complete, i.e. 2034.
