Magazine says Big Brother is watching Rochester

Rochester Business Journal
May 30, 2012

Rochester has been listed as one of America’s top surveillance cities.

Men’s Health magazine recently released its rankings of the 100 most watched cities in the U.S. Rochester ranked No. 5.

To determine the list, Men’s Health tracked the overall presence of red light, traffic and police surveillance cameras.

In its June issue, Men’s Health said it polled local police and state transportation departments while also using websites like TrafficLand.com and PhotoEnforced.com to gather information. The magazine said it also calculated rates of authorized government wiretaps in each city.

Not surprisingly, Washington, D.C. ranked No. 1, followed by Houston, Denver and Cheyenne, Wyo. New York City ranked No. 32, and Buffalo ranked No. 48.
