Police Commissioner Ray Kelly announced at a security forum in Aspen, Colorado, on Saturday that Mayor Bloomberg will soon unveil the city's "Domain Awareness System," which the Associated Press describes as an "all-seeing" program that combines several streams of information to track criminals and potential terrorists. It's not clear yet if the Big Brother–y sounding system will change the way the department already surveils civilians or criminals, or Muslims in New Jersey, but Kelly said at the forum that the program combines citywide video surveillance with law enforcement databases. The city made the software in partnership with Microsoft; however, Office Anti-Terrorist Edition will not be sold publicly.
