If they can install simple ground based stuff correctly I sure as heck don't want them flying stuff around my neighborhood.........It was called "Project Shield" and cost about $45 million in federal funding. The idea was to equip police cars and other locations in Cook County with cameras capable of sending live video to a command center, giving first responders more information in an emergency.
But Monday's report said the program was troubled from the beginning. Equipment was never adequately tested, funds were mismanaged and of the 128 municipalities, 32 never received equipment. The report blasted Cook County officials, state leaders and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which administered the funds.
"The project was not implemented effectively and millions of tax dollars may have been wasted on equipment that does not perform as intended," the report said......Illinois Homeland Security program a waste? - Carmi, IL - The Carmi Times
