ATL aims to blanket city in surveillance cameras

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that the city of Atlanta is embarking on an ambitious project to blanket the city in surveillance cameras. The Atlanta police are expanding their fleet of cameras, as well as integrating privately controlled cameras owned by major corporations like Coca-Cola into a network equipped with video analytics and real time monitoring capabilities like those you see on cop shows. Like in cities nationwide, the Department of Homeland Security has provided funding for the project.
