Camera Network Expands Ahead Of Sturgis' 75th

Camera Network Expands Ahead Of Sturgis' 75th
STURGIS, SD -

Authorities have installed more and better surveillance cameras around Sturgis in preparation for next year's 75th motorcycle rally.

South Dakota Department of Transportation Secretary Darin Bergquist says his agency got a $283,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. It was used to help bring the city's camera system to about 30 cameras with more than 60 views.

He says the main purpose is traffic flow and pedestrian safety, but two other agencies will have access to video that's archived for a month to investigate accidents or identify crime suspects.

Critics say that the cameras invade people's privacy. But Division of Criminal Investigation agent James Legg says officials spoke at length about First Amendment and personal rights before purchasing the new cameras.
