Dakota Leo James, a Pittsburgh citizen and our son, went missing in Pittsburgh on January 25, 2017. Family and friends had to learn the hard way how to work with authorities and search for our loved one. As everyone knows, the final result was not as we had expected.
During this horrible ordeal, one of the biggest obstacles to gathering timely information was finding and obtaining video surveillance to help us in our search. We found that some cameras were dummies, some cameras were not working at all, and some footage had been overwritten due to the questionable timing of the start of the investigation. We also learned that cameras positioned directly above the sidewalks on some of the most popular bridges for pedestrians actually capture video of vehicular traffic and none of the sidewalks directly below. Additionally, much of the downtown river bank that is popular to so many has no surveillance.
In honor of our son and other families suffering similar circumstances, we ask that you sign this petition in support of our effort to raise awareness and to work with local authorities to improve surveillance capabilities and to make Pittsburgh as safer place for all.
