City in N.Y. turns to crime-catching cameras to fight crime

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Would-be criminals could soon be casting a wary eye skyward — toward an initial deployment of 75 surveillance cameras that Rochester police want to have in place by mid-November.

The much-discussed proposal has grown from the 28 cameras budgeted earlier this year — and far beyond an initial set-aside last summer for two digital video cameras, one for either side of the city. Police intend to build a system capable of expanding to 250 cameras that will keep 24-hour watch on high-crime areas such as North Clinton Avenue.
