McGruber (1417641) writes "The Atlanta fishwrap has a report (http://www.ajc.com/news/atlanta/atlanta-increases-surveillance-of-1183905.html) on the City of Atlanta's "Video Integration Center", which allows Atlanta's Police Department to control more than 100 public and private cameras. "Officials say hundreds or thousands more private-sector cameras will eventually feed into the center".

According to the Atlanta Police Foundation, “This is going to grow by leaps and bounds over the years. The goal, of course, is to have the entire city blanketed (with cameras).”"
