New Cameras Throughout Atlanta

ATLANTA (WAOK)- Smile…..pretty soon you may be monitored by camera almost everywhere in Atlanta.

The city council has approved plans for a video integration center that will analyze footage from thousands of public and privately owned security cameras throughout the city. Buckhead Coalition President Sam Massell says the new camera system will be very useful.

The center monitoring the cameras is expected to use software with the ability to identify “suspicious” behavior and can pinpoint where gunshots come from.

The ACLU says it is concerned that everyone will be tracked and monitored.
