Cities To Spend More On Security

U.S. cities expect to spend an additional $2.1 billion on security this year in light of terrorism concerns, according to a survey of nearly 200 mayors. The survey found that about half the funds will be spent on equipment ranging from new security cameras for public buildings, to Web-based communication systems that link hospitals, emergency-response personnel, and police departments. Other funding will go to train and staff police, fire, and public-health departments.
