Help us add more cameras to this map of polygamous towns

Last week, we reported on what appears to be an extensive surveillance network in Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz. Our interest in the topic was piqued by first-hand experience; it was seriously disconcerting walking around with cameras tracking us and not knowing who exactly was on the other end.

But we have no idea how many more mysterious cameras might be tucked away in the twin polygamous towns. We’ve also been told that new ones pop up frequently, so there may be cameras that weren’t even mounted during our visit last month.

And that’s where you come in. We’re hoping to crowdsource the camera count. Did you see a camera we missed during a recent visit to Short Creek? Do you live down there and have first hand experience with the cameras? If so, we want to hear from you.

You can check the map above for the cameras we’ve seen. If you know of others, email me at jdalrymple@sltrib.com. If you have a picture of the camera you saw that’s even better and please send it along as well.

So keep an eye out and good hunting.
