Indianapolis Adds More Cameras to Prep for Super Bowl
INDIANAPOLIS — In preparation for the 2012 Super Bowl, security officials will install at least a dozen surveillance cameras downtown here.
The city currently has 68 cameras placed in key areas throughout the downtown area. By the end of the year, officials will add seven more cameras near Lucas Oil Stadium and six more along Georgia Street, The Indianapolis Star reports. Georgia Street runs between Conseco Fieldhouse and the Indiana Convention Center and will serve as the Super Bowl Village site.
A federal grant will pay for the cameras, which each cost from $3,000 to $5,000. The city, which will have to pay for camera maintenance, is seeking proposals for a four-year service contract.
After the Super Bowl, officials hope to increase the amount of cameras to 100 as more funding becomes available.
