In a bid to expand its surveillance network, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police want to connect to private businesses’ cameras, which would allow officers to monitor malls, gas stations and banks across the county.

Although Police Chief Rodney Monroe did not say how many cameras the department hopes will be linked to its network, the policy change would be an unprecedented expansion since the department started using cameras 12 years ago.

The department is already connected to private cameras at Time Warner Cable Arena, Bank of America Stadium and bank buildings, police leaders said Monday. Police say expanding the network would help them catch more criminals and prevent crimes.

But the cameras would also collect more images of people who haven’t done anything wrong and store the video on police servers for weeks.
