Private Webcams and the Police
Our surveillance society marches on:
Commercial burglaries have risen in Corona in the past few years. At the same time, security-camera technology has improved, allowing business owners to use Web sites to view their shops or offices from home or while on a trip.
Now the Corona Chamber of Commerce and the Police Department are encouraging businesses with such systems to provide police dispatchers a password so they can see what's going on during an emergency.
How soon before there's a law requiring these webcams to be built with a police backdoor?
