Mayor Mitch Landrieu of New Orleans has proposed discontinuing the city's use of its security camera network. The cameras began to be installed in 2003, as a response to the city's high crime rate. However, despite the expenditure of several million dollars, a recent report by the city's inspector general said that only 41 out of the 211 installed cameras were actually working.
