§ 8-501.  Surveillance Cameras to Prevent Crime and Violence. 167
   We, the citizens of Philadelphia, believe that the video surveillance has proven to be an effective tool to fight crime and violence in many cities, and that it can be implemented in a manner that protects civil liberties and legitimate privacy interests. Accordingly, The City of Philadelphia and its Police Department shall consider the use of video surveillance, in a manner that protects civil liberties and legitimate privacy interests, as part of the City's anti-crime, anti-violence program.
