Quote:MARYLAND COUNTY EXEC. DISCOVERS SECRETIVE NETWORK OF 500+ SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS OPERATED OUT OF UNMARKED ROOM

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/03/...rked-room/

Quote:A network of hundreds of cameras inside and outside Anne Arundel County public buildings in Maryland, unbeknown to the local authorities and county officials, was shut down earlier this week. Now officials are trying to find out more about the extensive operation.

The system of more than 500 cameras, the Baltimore Sun reported, was discovered by County Executive Laura Neuman, who just recently was sworn into the position

Neuman was alerted to the cameras when the contractor monitoring them greeted her in the parking lot on her first day. She wondered how he knew she had arrived. She asked him about his job, and he showed her the surveillance room.

“I thought it was unusual,” Neuman said. “I saw cameras monitoring activity all over the county. I would think something like that would be handled through the police department rather than an unmarked office on the first floor of the Arundel Center.”

WJZ reported Neuman saying the contractor (Hyers) was reporting to the former county executive directly, not the police.

Hyers, speaking with the Sun, said if the police had asked about the system, he would have shown them everything.

Although WJZ reported that police didn’t know about the system...

The Sun reported the county police chief who served from 1998 to 2006, P. Thomas Shanahan, saying he remembers when some cameras were installed, citing protection of people and property as their purpose.

The police department is taking care of the investigation into the camera system.
