Do you welcome more surveillance cameras in your neighborhood?

According to The City, the Bronx’ Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) have gotten together with Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark to set up more than 4,000 cameras around high activity areas like business districts, apartment buildings, and schools through a program called Computer Assisted Mapping System (CAMS).

What’s interesting is that many residents, the Bronx Defenders, and the New York Civil Liberties Union say they had never even heard of the CAMS program. It seems to have been done quietly, without fanfare or even notice.

While some civil libertarians have expressed unhappiness with the additional unseen eyes watching the streets, some business leaders welcome the extra coverage.
