Mayor In London, Meets With Police Chief And Examine City's Security System Consisting Of 500,000 Cameras


Mayor Michael Bloomberg has his eye on more security against terror attacks. He went to London Tuesday to check out their surveillance camera system, one of the largest in the world.

Ever since the Times Square car bomb scare on May 1, the mayor's been looking to build up New York's camera network.

That means adding to the ring of steel in Times Square, similar to central London's. The mayor said more NYPD surveillance cameras may prevent another terror scare.

London has 500,000 surveillance cameras, more than any other city in the world.

Bloomberg visited London's mayor to see how these help Britain fight terror.

"We live in a world of suicide bombers. We live in a world of international terrorism," Bloomberg said.
Nearly everywhere you look in London, there's someone or some "thing" looking right back at you.
