FLINT, Mich. (AP) — You’ve heard of adopt-a-highway programs — but how about adopting a police camera? That’s how the city of Flint, Mich., wants to cover the $420,000 cost of adding 14 surveillance cameras. It currently has just one of the cameras. The city and a private security firm, Asset Protection Specialist, are looking for businesses and individuals willing to pay $30,000 to have their names or corporate logos placed on one of the pole-mounted boxes, which also feature a police shield and a flashing blue light. So far — no takers. ——— Information from: The Flint Journal, http://www.mlive.com/flintjournal Published in The Messenger 7.30.08
