Adopt a police camera

You've heard of adopt-a-highway programs - but how about adopting a police camera?

That's how the city of Flint, Mich., wants to cover the $420,000 cost of adding 14 surveillance cameras. It currently has just one of the cameras.

The city and a private security firm, Asset Protection Specialist, are looking for businesses and individuals willing to pay $30,000 to have their names or corporate logos placed on one of the pole-mounted boxes, which also feature a police shield and a flashing blue light.

So far - no takers.
