Microsoft has cooperated with the New York Police Department in a bid to create a city-wide surveillance network that will then be offered to the cops further afield.
Michael Bloomberg, NYC Mayor, announced the introduction of a cutting-edge surveillance system that would be able to analyze a range of data input including smart cameras, license plate readers and radiation detectors to deliver a real-time security overview.
Microsoft and the New York Police Department believe that the Domain Awareness System (DAS) will really help to fight crime on the city streets. Their network, combining a variety of advanced surveillance methods, will be able to alert investigators in cases when, for instance, suspect packages or vehicles might present a security threat. Michael Bloomberg claimed that the network would utilize existing surveillance technologies and unify them through the new system.
The project will capitalize on new powerful policing software allowing the authorities to quickly access relevant material gathered from existing technology and help them respond more efficiently. While claiming that the new system would be developed for preventing terrorism, the Mayor elaborated that it could be used for other purposes, like fighting everyday crime.
Although the City has largely resolved its troubles with street crime when its former mayor Rudy Giuliani started his time in office, recently the New York City Police has been reacting to enormous social protests from the Occupy movement, which included mass arrests.
Both Republicans and Democrats responded in a rare show of agreement and passed through the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act, dubbed an “anti-Occupy” law that would end America’s right to protest. Although New York is regarded as a prime terrorist target, such real-time security system might also be seen as a response to the US largest social movement in decades.
Microsoft announced that the joint development would be sold to other police departments, with New York being just an experiment for the system. In case Redmond and the NYPD generate any further sales, New York receives a 30% cut of the profit. As for the New York Mayor, he also confirmed that the NYPD and Microsoft will now be trying to expand the system across world.

|Big Brother is hear.|
You have to remember these are the same people - Bloomberg and other azzholes are working to Ban large sugary soft drinks for health reasons.
Democrats; don't you just love them..NOT..
Democrats - They consider you and I too dumb to take care of our own lives so the have to do it for us; except you and I pay for that care.
Republicans - They just have the attitude go fuk yourselves and I don't care about you..
You have to remember; these two parties are NOT two parties; they are basically one political party with two facts within it.
just remember how much microcrap is really crap..
Remember the US Navy tried to use it after converting their command and control of ship from Linux?
The software crashed and was so bad they had to actually tow a ship back to port..
So New York SS get ready for the BSOD's.. and all the Hacks your going to get..

|isn't it funny that this news came out right after the announcement that facebook's facial recognition software is ready to go. hmmmmmmm... with the NSA building the largest data center in the world, and 2 key components to an instant ID system. i think i will be moving to the south pacific soon. so i can have some privacy while i take a shit.|
|If the protestors all learned about the freeman, sovereign, movement (research it at youtube), then they would actually have rights where now they don't. Then if they had a fee-scheduale in place, they'd be gettin rich everytime a cop arrested them and mass arrests would equal mass loss of money and the cops would think twice, whereas now they can do whatever they like, And the people are ignorant.|

|big invasion of privacy|
|The very same second it became a law in my country I would cancel my cable subscription and do all my internet through the open wifi at the local University,I would`nt use the internet at all from home and deny them the exorbitant charges we pay so that foreign police may monitor and control us like an Orwellian big brother|
|Bloomberg makes my pee boil,head of the 3rd largest media company in the world and one of the richest men in America,allied to the American film and music companies as well as owning shares in more than one of them he has constantly been seen at the forefront of big shows like 911 and now a key player for the Media companies in breaching basic human rights of privacy not just for America, but for the world,just another corporate fascist hiding behind an office whereby he is supposed to help the people,methinks he is still not the only puppet master in the show though.|

|I just hope that they use this to fight petty and violent crime. Although I doubt it will be used for anything less than murder. Living in a major metro for the first time in my life I feel unsafe since the police just don't care about anything below murder. Even if you are shot at or your house receives a bullet a police report is just a waste of time to them. I had someone walk up to my house point the gun right at the house and pull the trigger bullet went through 2 walls. I even had surveillance video to show the officer and he didn't care. But if I had been killed then and only then would they have actually done anything.|
I hope that it at least deters some crime!

|Have to laugh a bit. A mate of mine had his bike stolen from the town centre. It was locked up in plain sight out in the open and close (8m) to a bank and close-ish (12m) from a CCTV station. The Police told him his bike wasn't covered by the cameras!||
