NYPD Unveils Crime- And Terror-Fighting ‘Domain Awareness System’
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A dramatic new way to track criminals and potential terrorists was unveiled Wednesday by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.
It melds cameras, computers and data bases capable of nabbing bad guys before they even know they’re under suspicion.
If a suspicious package is left at a location by a terrorist the NYPD will now be able to instantly tap into video feeds to look back in time to see who left it there, and that’s just one of the many things the NYPD’s new high-tech “Domain Awareness System” can do, CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer reported
“We are not your mom and pop police department anymore. We are in the next century. We are leading the pack,” Bloomberg said.
