Scranton Police Plans For Expanded Surveillance
As Orwellian as it gets...The whole article I linked is quite short with video.

The new software they would purchase would allow police to tap into and watch private surveillance feeds in real time. They would need the camera owner's permission.

Down the line I can see the police wanting and accessing private video feeds without asking for it. They'll just push the arguments of public safety and solving/fighting crime. The majority of the public will buy it and go along with another expansion of the surveillance state

SCRANTON — Authorities in Scranton are looking to increase surveillance all over the city. Not by adding more cameras, but by adding more eyes looking at the cameras already in place.

Scranton City Council announced this week that it is applying for a grant that would create community-wide surveillance for Scranton Police.

But the grant money wouldn’t pay for any cameras. It would pay for software that would allow Scranton Police to tap into private surveillance systems.
