"Big Brother" will soon be watching you when you visit the City of Spencer.

The city is joining other American cities by placing surveillance cameras at undisclosed locations, with grant money purchasing new security equipment, added to cameras already in place at street intersections.

The cameras are being added to dozens and dozens in place inside and out of Spencer's most frequent destination - WalMart.

The street cameras will be hooked to recording devices monitored at Spencer's 911 center.

About nine new cameras are being installed, with more planned for later, according to public works administrator Rob Miller.

Spencer Mayor Terry Williams said, "I'm excited about it. It's really going to be good."

The Times Record-Roane County Reporter, reported last week that the camera positions have not yet been made public.

Some of the locations will be at public facilities like the water plant, part of Homeland Security, while others will be at various street locations.
