In 1949, when George Orwell published his sci fi classic 1984, the ideal of surveillance cameras were considered as oppressive as a society could get. Here in Allentown, in 2014, they are being touted as our guardian angels. The Morning Calls reports that City Center, the private development company owned by J.B. Reilly, will outfit all their new buildings with both cameras and private security personnel. These cameras will be supposedly monitored 24/7, providing the arena area with it's own de facto police force. Apparently, Allentown's reputation precedes it.
