Cameras That Were Downtown For Black Expo Are Down Now
Homeland Security Says They Are Being Repaired
The cameras that dotted the downtown area last weekend for Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration had nothing to do with the Black Expo, according to IMPD's Deputy Chief Mike Bates.
Instead, they were up for what Bates described last week as "not so much the Summer Celebration this weekend, but the Motorcycles on Meridian next month." The mobile cameras have now been taken down for what Indiana's Department of Homeland Security calls transmission problems.
Elia James with Homeland Security explains the issue. "There are three mobile cameras and we are having issues with them transmitting." She added, "They record but we want to be able to see what they see and also want to be able to move them."
But did the cameras work properly during the expo, or during the Super Bowl when at least one of the camera's was reportedly purchased? James didn't know.
