CITY OF PHILADELPHIA, PA: “Surveillance Camera Program”

The City of Philadelphia spends over ONE MILLION dollars in taxpayer money on cleaning up illegal dumping.

In 2009, Philadelphia partnered with Q-Star Technology to launch their FlashCAM program to help stop these criminals and in 2010, 71 violations in the amount of $300 were issued and 48 arrests of illegal dumpers have been made by the Philadelphia Police Department Neighborhood Services Unit.

The city of Philadelphia has a dedicated page on their website that provides more details on their FlashCAM program (visit City Of Philadelphia website).
