Want to play traffic cop? Thanks to our monitored society, you can. Visit the scene of a crime by live webcam or inform the police of an offense.
All over the world, simple webcams are used to keep an eye on city traffic. The images recorded by these cameras can often be found, unencrypted, on the Internet. In Sheriff Software, media artist Dries Depoorter allows us to peer over the police’s shoulder – or even play traffic cop ourselves.
