300 CCTVs to sweep Sydney for APEC

‘More than 300 high definition CCTV cameras have been placed in potential terrorist targets in the lead-up to Sydney’s APEC Summit, acting Premier John Watkins says.

The new cameras bring to 6400 the total number of cameras watching people using buses, trains and ferries.

The cameras, 200 of which use cutting-edge facial recognition technology, have been installed across the city in buses, ferry and train stations.

“The technology which includes live streaming to large LCD displays will also prove a strong deterrent to common criminals and thugs,” Mr Watkins told reporters today.’
