Seattle Pays $150K To Remove Unused Surveillance Cameras

Seattle pays company $150K to remove unused surveillance cameras. I don't think it says anything broader about the industry but it's quite a bizarre move and amount to spend. Hat tip, MM.

Quote:

The Seattle Police Department installed the cameras back in 2013 but were never put into operation after a community outcry.

Anyone local to Seattle with color about what happened?
