Lansing (Michigan): City expands video system without adding its own cameras
A serial killer who committed five homicides in this city in 2007 prompted city officials to install video surveillance in its most crime-ridden neighborhoods. While the killer was caught in the fall of 2007 before the cameras were fully deployed, the city decided to continue with the surveillance project to aid law enforcement in crime investigations, said Jeff Kludy, chief technology administrator for the City of Lansing. “We deployed 10 cameras in the north end as a pilot test project and let them run for six months and gathered crime stat data,” said Kludy. “We saw a reduction in crime so we expanded the project and decided to move it to the south end of the city as well.”
