Where should the city of Atlanta place surveillance cameras?

By Ernie Suggs

The Atlanta City Council has voted to spend $2.25 million to increase its video surveillance efforts throughout the city.  A total of 112 new cameras, including 92 in the all-important downtown area, will be installed. City officials are hoping to build a network that includes thousands of cameras that would be monitored regularly. Read the full story.

So, with crime seemingly at no end, and with the city determined to build this program, where would you like to see cameras placed with Atlanta city limits?

3rd Street and Piedmont Ave. Transvestite prostitutes, pimps, johns and drug dealers are there EVERY single night. After living there for over ten years I was assaulted and my car vandalized one time too many and I moved recently, right when a news clip on local tv news channel showed the “night workers”and increasing aggresiveness. Basically cameras would show that the entire Piedmont corridor from Capitol building to Ansley is full of criminal activity and getting very dangerous at night. Unfortunately, police are not effective in cleaning the streets up and interrogate the victims more harshly than the criminals.
