On January 6, 2021, NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced a Black Canary Security Camera (BBSC), a $1 billion project to improve security, privacy, and transparency in New York City.
The BBSC will provide police officers with cameras that capture the identities of citizens without the need for a warrant.
The project is backed by the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the New York State Police.
The project will see the creation of a public database of people who have been stopped by police officers, and will create a “black box” that will be able to transmit that information to the BBSC, enabling police departments to better protect themselves against crime.
The NYPD is currently in the process of installing 1,100 cameras in its Police Department, but the NYPD has been reluctant to disclose how many of those cameras are actually being used by the NYPD, or how many are being installed as a result of the BBSPC.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has said that he hopes to see the NYPD begin using cameras by 2020.
The New York Police Department has been using Black Canary cameras since it began using them in the early 2000s.
In 2014, Mayor Bloomberg introduced legislation that required NYPD officers to wear body cameras, but it was ultimately vetoed by the Governor.
In addition to Black Canary, the NYPD also purchased a Black Canaries Security Camera from a company called Canary Media in 2013.
The Black Canary system will be used by NYPD officers for surveillance, and can be used on NYPD vehicles.
The BBSC is the first of two initiatives the NYPD is proposing to use the Black Canary project as part of its overall plan to improve the safety and security of New York.
The second project, the Black Safety Camera Initiative, is also in the works, but is much smaller in scope and has received little public attention.
According to a statement released by the BBMPC on Monday, the BBISI will provide officers with body cameras that can be remotely controlled by the police and will be worn by the officer while in public.
The NYPD’s Black Safety camera program was previously described in detail in a 2016 article by The New York Times.
The article described the NYPD’s plan to equip officers with Black Canary body cameras in a partnership with Canary Technologies.
In the BBISMI, the New Yorkers plan to purchase a number of cameras and develop software that will enable the BBISTL to be used to monitor, record, and analyze the movements of individuals.
The initiative is expected to cost $1.2 billion and is intended to cover the cost of the equipment and software, plus the costs associated with training, and to support the delivery of the software to police agencies in other departments across the country.
According to a press release from the BBPC, the initiative aims to “address the root causes of violence and the problems that stem from them.
We believe that using body cameras to identify suspects will provide law enforcement with the tools to address the issues of violence, crime, and violence against women.”
In order to implement the initiative, the Mayor and his NYPD Commissioner, Commissioner Ray Kelly, will need the support of the US Congress, the White House, and local law enforcement.
In addition, Congress will need to approve the BBPS program before it can go into effect.
The Mayor’s press conference with Bloomberg on January 6 was a preview of what could be in store for the NYPD in the months ahead.
