The NYPD launched a new citywide surveillance system on Wednesday that officials say will "revolutionize law enforcement." The system will also be packaged and sold across the country for a profit.
The Domain Awareness System, developed with Microsoft, will centralize information in a massive information network, including live video feed from public and private cameras and sensors, maps, city records, arrest records, license plate readers, 911 calls, "and other existing tools and technology."
"It is a one-stop shop for law enforcement," New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said at a City Hall press conference unveiling the new technology.
"All the information is presented visually and geographically and in chronological context," said police commissioner Ray Kelly.
