Orlando is putting $800K toward more police and cameras downtown

Recent late-night violence downtown has to lead the city to take steps to increase night-time safety in the central business district and downtown entertainment area. So far, they've put an end to parklet and outdoor seating on sidewalks and allocated $800K for more police and cameras. 

What's next? More changes could come after the next city council meeting including a temporary prohibition on outdoor speakers playing music directed toward city sidewalks and streets.
