4:51 am
request. public defenders can make a request. victims. and by the way, the community sometimes just used it for simple things like making sure the streets are clean. >> larson says the police and district attorney have supported the plan. he also talked about privacy concerns saying he's trying to balance crime prevention and protecting the rights of people. these cameras are very visible. no facial recognition involved and larson met with privacy groups when he put this program together. he says he hopes to expand the cameras to the rest of the city, maybe to other cities around the country. it's 4:51. back to steve, where it sounds life threatening july is cooling down quite a bit. >> it sure looks like it. everything is pointing in that direction, pam and dave. this week i'm sure somewhere down the road here as we transition from july to august, we get back into hotter temperatures. this looks cooler for all.
