CCTV database to fight terror

‘POLICE are stepping up the heat on potential terrorists by seeking access to “tens of thousands” of closed circuit television cameras.

Police will store every NSW camera location in a central database so that terrorists and other criminal activity can be speedily tracked.

Owners of large and small businesses who have installed CCTV cameras in customer areas or outside their premises will be asked to register them with police.

The information will be used to create a map of CCTV locations, allowing police to quickly source footage showing suspects and crimes.’
