Alert for Hollywood CA, please
read & be aware:
'There will be 64 cameras
on Hollywood, Santa
Monica and Sunset boulevards and Western
In the 1990s, landlords mounted cameras on buildings
along Yucca Street in Hollywood, turning
over footage of suspected drug activity to police. Three years ago,
LAPD installed motion-sensing cameras around Hollywood and in the Valley
But those efforts are a far cry from the technology planned
for Hollywood Boulevard and other locations.
The cameras, which can pan, tilt and zoom at
the flick of joystick controlled by an officer, are capable of
seeing every inch of a block. Police will also have the capability of
searching recordings kept on file.
Plans call for installing them along the boulevard
at the corners of Vine Street, Cahuenga Boulevard and Whitley,
Highland and Sycamore avenues.
Accompanying them will be signs warning passersby that they are being filmed.' Read More...
