ILLINOIS TO BEEF UP ITS PUBLIC CCTV WITH REST-STOP CAMERAS

Illinois is reportedly spending nearly $4 million to equip its highway rest stops with security cameras and emergency call boxes. The system, expected to be in place by mid-October, will let people contact state police if they feel threatened at any of the stateâ??s 53 rest stops and will give police a record of crimes committed there. People needing help can push a button on the emergency box, which automatically alerts authorities and sends them pictures from that camera so they can see what is happening. â??It adds to our homeland security,â? says Mike Monseur, a spokesman for the Illinois Department of Transportation told Associated Press.
