Chicago Expanding Use of Security Cameras

On Wednesday the City of Chicago revealed a slew of new security cameras at Navy Pier. This is part of an effort by the City of Chicago to put cameras on all the beaches, Soldier Field and McCormick Place. A total of 200 cameras were installed in February of this year at Navy Pier. The total project cost $4.2 million. The cameras are monitored and viewed by the police marine unit, a local police station and the U.S. Coast Guard command center.

The City has made no secret of it's long term plan of placing cameras throughout the city to monitor crime. Recently the city has announced plans to place cameras along the streets of the city to photograph and ticket uninsured drivers. We have been reporting regularly about the expanded use of red light cameras by Chicago.
