Ohio county to buy 4 mobile cameras, use at GOP convention

CLEVELAND (AP) — Monitored security cameras will be used to watch people on the street during this summer’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

Cleveland.com reports (http://bit.ly/1OSYU5D ) that Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County is buying four mobile cameras that can be placed on buildings or sidewalks and monitored at all times.

The first use of them will be in July during the GOP’s convention.

Netvision 360 Security Group, a camera company, says the mobile surveillance systems can aid law enforcement and security personnel as a tool to curb disruptive behavior at events or demonstrations. They will be monitored in real time at a dispatch center.

The cameras will be paid for with federal money including an Urban Area Security grant.
