D.C. Surveillance Camera Regulations Set
Mayor Fenty entered new regulations governing the use of his controversial surveillance camera network into the D.C. Register yesterday.
After the mayor announced his intention to link 4,500 cameras into a single network, civil liberty groups protested and the D.C. Council passed legislation requiring the mayor to submit regulations for its approval. However, the council's bill will not take effect for at least 30 days, because it must be signed by Fenty and approved by Congress, so the mayor elected to publish the emergency regulations, said his spokesman Carrie Brooks.
The emergency regulations will remain in effect 120 days, during which time the administration will submit a plan to the council as required, Brooks said.
