Drones Over Compton: LAPD Plays Big Brother

Video surveillance of high-crime neighborhoods has been in place in cities like Baltimore and Philadelphia for a while now, but the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department have taken it to the next level using drones. Persistent Surveillance Systems, an Ohio company founded by a former US Air Force officer, have developed a system where police can fly camera-equipped drones over the city. The drones’ cameras provide police with a live stream of every person and vehicle on the ground within a 25-square-mile radius. And Compton, cultural home of Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, The Game, and Eazy-E, among others is the LAPD’s chosen testing ground for this surveillance.

In the video above, Sergeant Doug Iketani describes the new drone technology and states, “we kept this project a secret from everybody as we know that people aren’t comfortable with Big Brother.” The project has been temporarily stalled because the cameras are not able to clearly show faces, but it’s only a matter of time before the technology improves… And when that happens, anything one does in the open, whether a crime or not, could be done under the watchful eye of the police.
