Shortage Hits 022
Residents in the 22nd Police District are being asked by Chicago police to volunteer to monitor cop surveillance cameras.
The cameras, formally called Police Observation Devices, or PODs, are mounted on streetlights in neighborhoods and used by police to spot illegal activity, including loitering, drug dealing and other crimes.
City police Officer Joe Hurley announced that police are looking for POD monitors during a recent Beat 2222 CAPS meeting.
