From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Program implemented by Chicago, IL mayor Richard Daley, which created the most extensive video surveillance network in the United States[1] by linking up 3000 surveillance cameras to a centralized monitoring system. The cost of the program was $217 million dollars, much of which came from Homeland Security grants.[1][2]

Daley stated that Chicago will have a surveillance camera on every street corner by the year 2016.[1][2]
