Bethlehem police commissioner Randy Miller says the cameras that would be placed anywhere from concert venues to parking garages would scan only what goes on in public. He says masking software would block out views such as residents' windows. Miller says, "It's not '1984."'
Mayor John Callahan told the City Council on Monday that officials hope to pay for the wireless network and other projects with part of a $7.5 million bond next year. The council is expected to receive details of the mayor's proposal later this week.
