Atlanta police will be able to keep much closer tabs on doings in the downtown and Midtown areas with 112 new security cameras.
The Atlanta City Council voted unanimously Monday to buy the cameras as part of an expanded crime prevention initiative the city began five years ago in a public-private partnership that includes Central Atlanta Progress and the Midtown Alliance.
Illinois-based Avrio RMS Group, a national leader in Internet protocol equipment for public safety agencies, won a $2.25 million contract to install the cameras, 92 of which will be placed in downtown and Midtown neighborhoods. The remaining 20 will be evenly distributed throughout the rest of the city.
