High Tech State Security System Considered

St. Louis, MO – The state is considering a multi
million-dollar system of security cameras, which would be aimed around the clock at some key Missouri assets.

Chesterfield-based Sentrus Security president Richard Weinstein says the system would let the state director of Homeland Security see what's going on at places considered a risk for terrorist
attack.

During a test of the system yesterday, officials with the Homeland Security office watched the mock arrest of terrorist
suspects at Lambert Airport in St. Louis and Kemper Arena in Kansas City.

The system also allows the state to listen in on local police communications.
