Baltimore To Buy Talking Surveillance Cameras
BALTIMORE -- Scofflaws beware, the next on-street surveillance camera could talk to you.
Baltimore City's Board of Estimates recently approved the purchase of five talking cameras at a cost of $5,000 apiece.
According to The Baltimore Sun, city officials will employ the talking cameras to catch vandals and litterbugs.
The new technology is equipped with motion detectors, bright flashes, and they actually give verbal recorded warnings.
City officials aren't saying where the cameras will be placed.
The camera company, Q-Star Technology, said about 150 cities use the cameras to control graffiti, loitering and illegal dumping.
