Indianapolis Beefs Up Surveillance for 2012 Super Bowl

August 19, 2011  | 

In preparation for the 2012 Super Bowl, security officials will install at least a dozen surveillance cameras in downtown Indianapolis.

The city currently has 68 cameras placed in key areas throughout the downtown area. By the end of the year, officials will add seven more cameras near Lucas Oil Stadium and six more along Georgia Street, reports The Indianapolis Star. Georgia Street runs between Conseco Fieldhouse and the Indiana Convention Center and will serve as the Super Bowl Village site.

A federal grant will pay for the cameras, which cost from $3,000 to $5,000 each. The city, which will have to pay for camera maintenance, is seeking proposals for a four-year service contract.

After the Super Bowl, officials hope to increase the amount of cameras to 100 as more funding becomes available.
