Oakland City Council delays vote on Domain Awareness Center

OAKLAND, Calif.

The decision came down early Wednesday morning.

The council has already approved what it's calling a Domain Awareness Center.

A Homeland Security grant will pay for the facility.

The center will serve as a hub for surveillance cameras in place at the Port of Oakland. Other cameras across the city will be added later.

Oakland police will help run the facility.

Opponents fear it will be used for widespread surveillance without search warrants.
