San Diego Police Want Privacy Eliminated in Name of Security

Surprise, surprise: in response to a crisis, San Diego police want to destroy privacy in the name of increased security, this time pushing to give police round the clock access to school cameras, with live streaming direct-to-car capabilities. Seemingly innocuous and a much needed move for safety, few are questioning just what use this will be put towards when there isn't a shooter involved.

Safety is on everyone's minds since the Sandy Hook tragedy, and San Diego police want instant access in the event of an emergency.


This means increased safety for San Diego's students through a high-tech program that's been around since 2010, called Operation Secure San Diego.


"Operation Secure San Diego is our ability to take live streaming video and stream it directly into a responding police officer's car," explained Asst. Chief Boyd Long with the San Diego Police Department.
