Dayton is latest Ohio city to install surveillance cameras to monitor downtown problem areas

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, May 9, 2014 7:12 AM EDT

Dayton is becoming the latest Ohio city to install surveillance cameras to deter crime in specific problem areas downtown.

Despite some privacy concerns, Ohio law enforcement agencies contend live video feeds and surveillance footage have helped reduce crime and identify offenders. Police in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo are already using them.

The Dayton Daily News says the city announced this week that it will install 27 new cameras to allow officers to watch in real time where there are large events or places that have seen a rash of criminal activity.

Privacy advocates say there is not convincing evidence that cameras deter criminals, and catching people accused of crimes does not justify the constant monitoring of law-abiding citizens.
