The Miami Beach area, especially the region known as South Beach, is famous for the tanned and trim tourists who frequent the area, as well as the locals who enjoy the cosmopolitan metropolis by the sea.
By the end of the day Thursday, it could be known for something else: surveillance cameras.
The Miami Beach Budget Advisory Committee said that elected officials should consider putting surveillance cameras in the city’s entertainment district.
The recommendation comes after a city contractor had already begun the work of installing red-light cameras at high-traffic intersections.
Eventually, the city could have 30 of these cameras in place. They would have one significant difference from the usual red-light cameras. These would also provide streaming video.
