The adot networks are not a new phenomenon.
In the late 1980s, a series of security cameras in New York City caught a group of teenagers riding around New York in a van with a banner reading “Stop the adots”.
They were soon apprehended and prosecuted, but the incident inspired an entire series of adot surveillance films.
Now, New Jersey police are using a similar tactic to catch teenagers using adot technology in an effort to combat the problem of cyberbullying and other online harassment.
The state’s attorney general, Kevin Sabet, told the Associated Press on Monday that adot cameras in Newark, Newark and Hoboken are “trying to find those kids and stop the violence”.
“We’re not going to be the first state to do that,” Sabet said.
“It’s going to take a lot of work.”
Adot networks, or ad-blockers, are software programs that block the websites or apps of users who are identified as “targeted”.
The idea is to create a “virtual fence” between an online message and a user’s computer, allowing users to block out what the user wants.
Adot cameras have been used in the US since 2007 to catch teens and young adults using ad-blocking software.
A report by the US Federal Trade Commission found that ad-blocks accounted for about two-thirds of all traffic blocking technology used in 2017.
Sabet said that the ad-traffic cameras in each city will be monitored by a network of about a dozen police officers, who will use the footage to track down and stop juveniles who are using adblocking software, and report back to the police if they are identified.
Adopting a more robust approachThe ad-netting system in New Jersey will be similar to the one used by New York State Police in its recent ad-enforcement efforts.
A New Jersey State Police spokesman said the system will include surveillance cameras in some areas, and surveillance dogs in others.
The spokesman said that police will use a combination of social media, GPS tracking, and traffic camera footage to identify juveniles who have used ad- blockers, and will then have the ability to arrest them.
The spokesman said there are “about 10” locations in the state where police have observed the use of ad- blocking software.
Saying that the system has been successful in stopping juvenile activity in Newark and Newark, the spokesman said: “There is not a lot we can do about it, but we have a lot more tools in place now that we can take action against.”
