App shows location of security cameras in downtown Tampa installed ahead of the Republican National Convention


Strategically placed surveillance cameras will help police keep a watchful eye on downtown Tampa during the Republican National Convention.

However, when Jon Gales snapped a picture of a man installing one of the gadgets, he says he ran into trouble.

"He yelled at me and tried to get police to chase me, and I thought that was strange and interesting," he said.

After the encounter, Gales wanted everyone in Tampa to know just how many cameras are going up. So the 27-year-old computer programmer decided to do what he does best: make an app.

It took Gales one afternoon to spot all the cameras downtown. He counted 60.

He wants everyone to know where they are being watched.
