Huntington Beach, California. Huntington Beach Police Department come to a chord after the San Bernardino shootings back in December. They knew there were deficiencies with their security system around the city, and after a disastrous incident that incurred 14 people were killed and 22 injured, it was time to start an upgrade.
Last Monday, they got what they want to see. The Huntington Beach City Council unanimously agreed to adopt a new video surveillance system that will allow the department to access live-camera feeds. In the past, they only could see surveillance video record after the fact.
This new system versus the old system is night and day. It’s almost the difference between having a smart phone and a flip phone.
The new surveillance system has 158 cameras and cost $431,400.
The Huntington Beach will start installing the new system immediately and will have it up and running within the next month.
