SF mayor wants more surveillance cameras


By Demian Bulwa

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. Despite questions about the effectiveness of his 2-year-old surveillance camera program, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom will seek next month to add 25 cameras along Market Street and violence-plagued corridors like Sunnydale Avenue in Visitacion Valley.

The move would bring to 93 the number of anti-crime cameras installed in the city since July 2005, costing a total of $700,000. Before that happens, the city plans to hammer out a contract with a group of University of California researchers who would, for the first time, try to figure out whether the cameras are preventing or solving crime.
