Police surveylence may and will earn money for the city

Do you like to be wached? A partnership government with the privet company is a nothing new. It’s been done time and time again. So there is nothing unique public-private partnership that joined NYC police acumen with advanced computer algorithms.

Someone may think that to make something safe and produce money at the same time is unique but that is as simple as that: Make new rules or make old ones strict and collect income out that. Simple.

The new system developed by Microsoft and NYC Police Department incorporates more than 3,500 cameras in public places, license-plate readers at every major Manhattan entry point, fixed and portable radiation detectors, real-time alerts transmitted from the 911 emergency system and a trove of Police Department data, including arrests and parking summonses.

Microsoft now negotioting with a number of prospective buyers. Such a great of respond surprised Microsoft. But should it realy be a surprise; anything that make our life less privet is becoming very much in.

NYC is going to get 30% on any deal. It said that a package deal comes from at least several million dollars

“The interest from the United States has come from smaller municipalities, from sheriff’s departments, and police chiefs from several major cities,” said Dave Mosher, vice president of Microsoft Services. “Outside the U.S., large sporting events have approached us, and also law enforcement — people who are interested in providing public security.”

It took about $30 million and several years to put into together. If it were not software gig Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg it wouldn’t be done this fast or may be would’t be touched at all. But we are lucky with the mayor and we have new source of income.

announced in August that the system would be marketed elsewhere, it has figured in a number of investigative coups that went beyond the system’s original purpose of counterterrorism in Lower Manhattan after the Sept. 11 attack.

Surveillance footage fed to a windowless suite on Lower Broadway tracked a 20-year-old Bangladeshi man in the fall as he scoped out the fortresslike Federal Reserve Bank downtown, his target for a car-bomb attack (the videotaped evidence led to his guilty plea in February).

Officers responding to reports of shots fired outside the Empire State Building in August were immediately alerted that the victim had been felled by a single gunman and that there was no apparent terrorist threat.

Even the police commissioner Raymond W. Kelly, has raised privacy concern over this innovative software. But the Police Department says it sure that the system is not going to be misused.

Mr. Mosher of Microsoft said that while “the scale of what the N.Y.P.D. does is unmatched by most places in the world,” the design goal was applicable everywhere, “for the technical complexities to melt away so the cops can focus on doing their job and less about navigating 17 screens.” “If you can use there, you can use it anywhere, new York, New York”. We Are witnessing next step toward REAL POLICE STATE, which is Okay that it’s approved with our own text money.
