Free Cameras Being Installed to Fight Crime

A local grass roots organization, Neighborhood Watch Team Baltimore (NWT) has been implementing a free video surveillance camera program in the community for more than a year, with the specific objective of reducing crime in the city. NWT representatives say the original idea was to install fake cameras, which members believed would be a disincentive to crime. NWT leaders countered with a proposal that would use real cameras. Since the inception of the program, more than 100 cameras have been installed in neighborhoods throughout Baltimore.

NWT has worked to strategically install the cameras so that the costs can be shared by a number of residents, making the program affordable. The cameras are wireless, don’t need high-speed internet and even have a backup battery. NWT officials say that the cameras view not only your yard, but the street an alleyways by a house as well. They contend that the cameras have helped prevent and solve crimes throughout the area.
