In February, the City of Seattle installed video cameras at Cal Anderson Park. The cameras record video that later can be monitored by police and others. They can also be moved, zoomed and watched live by police after a crime or illegal activity is reported, and on other occasions. The Seattle City Council in June approved an $850,000 pilot program to install a dozen surveillance cameras in four parks. As the ACLU had urged, the council required that an audit of the cameras’ effectiveness be conducted after 21 months.
