Seattle Crime Cams installation made with Raspberry Pis #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Thanks to Dries Depoorter for writing in to tell us about this project. Check out more here.
Seattle Crime Cams first checks the location of the latest emergency caller in Seattle. (this real-time 911 information is freely available on the web) After it knows the location of this potential “crime scene” it searches for the closest realtime surveillance and shows them. Through the speakers you hear live police radio.
A bit longer explanation:
Seattle Crime Cams turns us into ultimate long-distance disaster tourists.In this city, which is filled to the brim with traffic cameras, the police make the calls they receive available online. Using the location of the latest call, the closest live online traffic camera are showed.
Pimoroni Display-O-Tron HAT: The Pimoroni Display-O-Tron HAT is an upgraded HAT version of our Display-O-Tron 3000!
The Display-O-Tron is a lovely 16×3 character LCD display with capacitive touch pads, GPIO breakout pins, and a six-zone RGB backlight (twice as bright as the older Display-O-Tron 3000)! Read more.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
