KCK plans to roll out a new surveillance network to combat gang voilence and drugs. The cameras will cost around $10k each and be placed in various public areas.
The city will also provide access to some "vigilante" groups like the Civic Academy and Neighborhood Watch Captains to monitor the feeds through the Internet and call 9-1-1 when they see any "suspicious or criminal behavior ".
The images will be recorded and stored for investigation purposes.
