Visitors to Camden's high-crime areas to be put on notice

During the last four weeks, Big Brother in Camden has taken note of 624 vehicles whose occupants did something suspicious near one of the city's busiest open-air drug markets, Sixth and York Streets. The owners of these vehicles will receive letters next week warning them that their vehicles were seen by the city's Eye in the Sky surveillance network in the high-crime and drug-trafficking area. The project has confirmed what city officials have been hearing from residents for a long time: Camden's drug and crime issues are not insulated city problems. Out of the 624 letters going out (205 are repeat offenders), 90 percent are going to residents of suburban communities, Cherry Hill and Sewell being the most common destinations.
