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.
