Surveillance Trucks

In Flordia, a police department brings mobile video surveillance security vans into high-crime neighborhoods and parks the truck for all to see, with the hope that this will serve as a deterent to crime. The side of the armored truck has a sign that reads, “Warning, you are under video surveillance.” The recorded surveillance video footage the truck records is then live-streamed to the local police department. Police and law enforcement aim to prevent crimes in high risk neighborhoods by simply parking a video surveillance truck and monitoring activity from headquarters.
