New LAPD surveillance system unveiled
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A security camera surveillance system to help fight crime was unveiled in the western San Fernando Valley on Thursday.
The cameras will cover the Los Angeles Police Department's West Valley and Topanga areas. The new system will be the LAPD's only one in which the video signal is transmitted wirelessly through Verizon 4G technology.
City Councilman Dennis Zine said the system will be an important tool for police in the Topanga and West Valley Divisions to deter illegal activity. He said it will also help catch criminals after a crime has been committed.
Los Angeles City Council approved a motion by Zine to transfer $679,830 for the project.
