Couple of weeks back Patrick spent the day hanging out with the Big Brothers watching the watchers at the American Society for Industrial Security confab at Dallas Convention Center. Turns out, some attendees were also given an all-access pass to the Dallas Police Department's video surveillance operations center, located at Dallas City Hall. Says the friend who gave us the heads-up: This is a rare treat indeed, especially as our tour guides give conference-goers a look at DPD's best-of busts captured on video. And per this account, "The DPD says the surveillance cameras have resulted in more than 2,100 arrests in 2010 alone." Jump for the look-see.
