    I think I saw another one somewhere else downtown. They looks strange, anybody know what they are?

    some type of camera monitoring system? I’m intrigued as well as to what these are. Any type of manufacturer identification on the pole?

    I don’t think those are CPD cameras; those are white and labeled as such.

    Perhaps they are apple pies?

    I hear they are taking over.

    Good guess, but looks like the shape of the object doesn’t match.

    those would need to be on top of the buildings to avoid echo.

    And they really do not look like the CPD cams but I wouldn’t rule out that perhaps they would want a nicer looking one there on state.

    naw, to me (and playing the odds) they look kinda like a nicer version of the traffic cam mountings. I know they’ve been putting those in all over town. There are a lot of them now.

    you can view those here: http://www.trafficland.com/city/CMH/

    I sent an email to Randy Bowman shortly after the topic was started to see if he could provide some info on what these are. Will share when I hear back. ;)
