Commission OK's Camera Surveillance Program
Posted by Damian Kelly on Jul 5, 2012 - 3:50:41 PM

WOODLAND HILLS—On Tuesday, July 3, the Los Angeles Police Commission voted to approve a contract for a wireless camera surveillance system that will be installed in the West Valley and Topanga Areas that include Woodland Hills.

According to a news release from Council District 3 (which includes Woodland Hills), the contract will now be sent to L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa for his review and approval.  Once approved, the cameras will be installed in approximately 10 weeks.


As part of the contract, the Los Angeles Police Department’s West Valley and Topanga Area stations will each receive a Wireless Camera Surveillance System including 8 new wireless surveillance cameras per station.  The network will use a secure cellular wireless connection with local WiFi access and will be installed at various locations throughout CD3.  The LAPD will be responsible for the maintenance of the surveillance system.


The process to implement a wireless camera surveillance system began on October 20, 2008 when a request was submitted.  CelPlan Technologies, Inc. was selected to provide the services.  Then on April 5, 2010, the Los Angeles City Council approved a motion submitted by Councilman Dennis P. Zine of CD3 to transfer $679,830.67 from the Street Furniture Revenue Fund to the LAPD to use towards purchasing the cameras. 


Zine, who is a current LAPD Reserve Officer and member of the Council’s Public Safety Committee, commented in a statement on the approval of the contract.


“Public safety is my number one priority and I am thrilled that this project is finally coming to fruition,” said Zine. “The camera surveillance system will be an effective crime fighting tool that will deter criminal behavior and will help identify vandals and burglars because the system can be relocated according to crime trends. I have been working diligently to make sure that this is the right system for the Valley and I think we have finally achieved the result we want.”
