Just seen this thread on Sheffield Forum and found this site. It has a live stream of the check in area of the jail, and you can also listen to live radio dispatch from the Sheriff's dept. I have to say on broad band in general the streaming cams are much better than time lapse ones.

And this got me thinking what other streaming webcams are out there. Earthcam seems to have a lot of webcams listed, and the New York City Department of Transport has loads of excellent streaming cameras to keep an eye on traffic, which also happens to cover some landmarks like Broadway. And last time I looked, this one of Times Square had tourists waving at it - morons.

In the future as I find more interesting webcams I shall post links to them here.
