MPDC's Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) System

The Metropolitan Police Department has developed a Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) system to support public safety operations in the nation’s capital during major events, emergencies, or times of heightened alert for terrorism. The CCTV system monitors public spaces only, with a focus on critical installations that have been identified as potential terrorism targets. The MPDC has used CCTV cameras since early 2000 to support the management of major events in the District. The current CCTV system was originally scheduled to be activated in late September 2001, but was pressed into action on the morning of September 11, following the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
