Seattle Crime Cams
Seattle Crime Cams turns us into ultimate long-distance disaster tourists.In this city, which is filled to the brim with traffic cameras, the police make the calls they receive available online. Using the location of the latest call, the closest live online traffic camera are showed.
Seattle Crime Cams first checks the location of the latest emergency caller in Seattle. (this real-time 911 information is freely available on the web) After it knows the location of this potential “crime scene” it searches for the closest realtime surveillance and shows them. Through the speakers you hear live police radio.
