The Peacemaker Comes to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

The Fort Lauderdale Police have recently deployed remote sensing in a very unique way - in a large armored van that gets parked near crime hot spots.  Referred to as the "Peacemaker" by law enforcement personnel, the van is home to a bank of remotely controlled cameras that officers at department headquarters can use to scan the area where the van is parked.  For additional information:

Comment: In keeping with privacy concerns expressed about highway cameras and drones, look for civil liberties groups to add the Peacemaker to their list.
