George Orwell may have predicted the police state was drawing near. But he never predicted there would be an app for it. According to the Daily Herald, the Round Lake Park Police Department has acquired ...
MyPD, a free application available for Android and iPhones. The app allows residents or others to connect with Round Lake Park police from their own devices.

The app is free, courtesy of tiny Round Lake Park (pop. 7371). At the same time, this Village also has to budget for the costs of a Federal lawsuit:
Ten Round Lake Park police officers have filed a federal lawsuit seeking more than $15 million, claiming body cameras that recorded them during private times violated their civil rights and right to privacy and intentionally inflicted emotional distress.

Your LakeCountyEye is not sure what the fuss is all about. It is a commonly known fact that a computer application can take control of the camera on any device with an Internet connection.

Note to residents of Round Lake Park: computer experts are in agreement about the best way to disable the camera on your smartphone ...
That's all your LakeCountyEye has. Don't forget to say CHEESE.
