The New York Police Department says it will launch a new surveillance system to track both criminals and potential terrorists.
FOX News Radio’s Courtney Kealy reports:
In Times Square the NYPD is visible on patrol everywhere, but soon it will launch a new hidden security surveillance program.
The all seeing “Domain Awareness Program” combines city-wide video surveillance with law enforcement data bases to track both criminals and potential terrorists.
(Supporter) “If you have nothing to hide then why would you worry about surveillance?”
Other say its over stepping its bounds.
(Opponent) “I don’t think there should be so many cameras and so much invasion of privacy.”
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says the software, developed with Microsoft, is essential to keep the city safe.
