'SafeZone' cameras are finally watching you


Police say they're already cutting crime; here's how the city's new street surveillance cams work

Downtown's 1st Precinct has extra eyes on the streets.

The Target-sponsored "SafeZone" cameras positioned along 1st Avenue, Hennepin Avenue South and Nicollet Mall are rolling, sending around-the-clock live wireless feeds of 20 intersections to the Minneapolis Police Department's 1st Precinct headquarters, 19 N. 4th St.

The cameras monitor a three-by-12-block area encompassing the heart of the Downtown entertainment/bar district.
