Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/BENJAMIN KRAIN --11/21/2013-- Lt. Casey Clark demonstrates the capabilities of 53 video cameras the Little Rock Police Department has placed in public areas around the city to deter and solve crimes by monitoring live streams from each location. The cameras can be easily moved to other locations and can broadcast prerecorded audio warnings and flash a blue light when suspicious activity occurs.

Little Rock police cameras positioned across the city last year in a $500,000 Internet-based surveillance network are yielding lower-quality footage because of bandwidth limitations.
