Smile! While police and traffic officials say the cameras provide invaluable information, the proliferation of surveillance has drawn concerns from some aldermen and civil libertarians who say the technology is ripe for abuse.
Post-Crescent Media obtained the locations of all 255 publicly-funded cameras currently installed at high-traffic intersections, the public library, police station, City Hall, Reid Golf Course and parking ramps. Starting next year, cameras will be installed in city parks and pavilions.
