Baltimore, Maryland, United States

Technology developed in the military to find who was planting roadside bombs to take out American soldiers has been adapted for civilian use by a former member of the Air Force, whose company seeks to work with police departments to use it to solve crimes. The airborne cameras provide hours of consistent surveillance and have proven highly effective at tracking down perpetrators so police can arrest them. But civil libertarians are alarmed what this widespread surveillance means and how it will be used, particularly since Baltimore officials did not tell the public about it for months.
