This site is devoted to following the developments in Chicago’s use of video surveillance. Chicago is a leader in implementing a “second generation” (beyond London) government surveillance camera network.

I have been interviewed as an expert on video surveillance in Chicago as well as the emergence of smart camera systems. I post on smart cameras over at InHardFocus.  A partial list of media interviews is available at my main web site, rajivshah.com.  I have talked extensively about red light cameras in Chicago and recently published and empirical study on surveillance cameras and crime in Chicago.
