Sur­veil­lance is about safety

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Arthur She­frin, Pikesville

I re­spect­fully dis­agree with the Amer­i­can Civil Lib­er­ties Union and that or­ga­ni­za­tion’s distrust of city air sur­veil­lance (“Donor to Baltimore po­lice sur­veil­lance pro­gram says pri­vacy de­bate ‘ healthy,’” Aug. 30).

Do they think the planes are tak­ing pic­tures of naked men or women? The ob­jec­tive is to give law en­force­ment an op­por­tu­nity to do their job to pro­tect the pub­lic. Lo­cat­ing those ar­eas where crime is preva­lent makes the good peo­ple who live and work there a bit safer.
