LAPD Ups the Counterterrorism Efforts

As quoted in the LA Times last week,

The (LA City)council's Public Safety Committee voted 4-0 to fund the homeland security initiative, expected to cost $1.27 million this year, and pay for extensive surveillance activities.

It was recommended last week that the Los Angeles City Council add 44 counterterrorism officers to the LAPD, which some think would also help with surveillance initiatives in neighborhoods known for high populations of gangs. Some argue that adding more officers and increasing surveillance cameras will be good for counterterrorism efforts as well as managing gang crime, others say it will be shifting resources away officers who deal directly with gangs.

Reading this post I think that there will be many security benefits of planting surveillance cameras...no matter what ever it may cost.
