When a 911 call comes in, St. Louis police now may be able to see the scene before responding officers have time to arrive.
DHS puppet, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said:
“Today is a great day for law enforcement and a bad day for criminals in the city of St. Louis.” That says it all right there, law enforcement considers it a great day, when private corporations work with law enforcement to spy on you. Dotson adds, “Cameras in public space are a part of everyday life. The case study is there, the examples are there, we’re just getting caught up.”
Access to private cameras also means not having to wait for a business to open to examine its recorded images, Lt. Brent Feig said. “We’re really leveraging the public space,” he said.
This is just phase 1 out of 4. Dotson says three phases should be completed by the fall!
The center has access to 140 cameras now, but Dotson envisions a network encompassing the surveillance capabilities of many neighborhood associations and businesses. Chicago police have access to 10,000 cameras, about 3,000 of them publicly owned, the chief said.
John Chasnoff, longtime member of the activist organization Coalition Against Police Crimes and Repression, called it “a spy hub for the whole city of St. Louis.”
“This is a big step toward mass surveillance of the city’s population,” Chasnoff complained. “People going about their business who have given no indication they have committed an offense are still being watched by their government and police.”
What police aren't telling you, is Motorola's 'Real Time Crime Center' is spying on you through numerous platforms:
"Real-Time Intelligence Client brings together streaming video with analytics, resource tracking, social media, voice, Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) and records information onto a single, intuitive interface with geospatial mapping."
And it gets worse:
"The Real-Time Intelligence Client lets analysts prepare and distribute live tactical video, recorded video clips, documents, photos and key information to your officers in the field, and to other agencies for multi-jurisdictional response. Push-a-Link and Push-a Snapshot make it easy to distribute video and photos to dispatched units. Real-time analytics monitor video streams and detect user-defined events of interest – to improve response times by alerting RIC operators to crowd formations, dropped bags and other suspicious behavior as it occurs."
Like many police departments, the St. Louis police use PublicEngines, which ironically was acquired by Motorola Solutions. The combination of PublicEngines’ analytics technology and CommandCentral situational awareness tools give police an unmatched platform for spying on citizens
Let's not forget how Raytheon is working with DHS/police to spy on Americans social media and license plates. Click here, here & here to read more.
Two weeks ago, I wrote an article describing how DHS is using the police to turn America into a giant surveillance state.
The IACP Center has been spying on social media since 2010. "In partnership with the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice, the IACP launched its Center for Social Media in October 2010."
The Real-Time Intelligence Client brings together streaming video with analytics, resource tracking, social media, voice, Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) and records information onto a single, intuitive interface with geospatial mapping.
Jeffrey Mittman, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri said: “Now they can follow you, keep data, store it and go back and search through it, so we’re going from what might seem like a benign observance of a public square to a Big Brother 24/7 surveillance society.
The surveillance system already connects with the St. Louis Port Authority, Locust Business District, South Grand Business Association and street department. Donations from the Police Foundation, asset forfeiture money, a DHS/FEMA port security grant in partnership with Motorola Solutions paid for the approximately $435,000 effort.
St. Louis police and Motorola Solutions announced the integration of a real-time crime center utilizing Motorola Solutions’ Real-Time Intelligence Client, which helps aggregate and correlate data from multiple sources such as video, sensors, alarms, computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and records management systems.
"It will be 24 hours a day. We'll have analysts here, triaging calls, listening to the police radio, listening to 911 calls, and being able to direct resources ultimately to catch the bad guys, ultimately keep our community safer" said St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson.
Lying police chief Dotson admits to having a close relationship with Motorola and then claims, citizens are demanding surveillance!
"Technology is part of police officers lives and Motorola Solutions technology is providing a platform that interfaces with existing systems and provides officers with more information than ever before," said St. Louis Metropolitan Police Chief Sam Dotson. “In today's technological world officers and citizens are demanding it. Ultimately we have a safer community and focused resources because of the technology."
Police are quoting from an approved DHS media handbook and use bold-faced lies to justify their actions. They claim it's being done in the name of public safety or to fight terror, it's all lies.
Police agencies across the country are using Motorola's Real Time Crime Center:
New York, Chicago, Boston, Houston, New Mexico and Kansas City the list goes on and on but you get the picture. Private corporations and DHS are working together to spy on EVERYONE!
