What are these new eyes in the sky?
In an effort to put a stop to ongoing illegal activities throughout the City, six mobile surveillance cameras have been installed in targeted areas to deter and/or eliminate criminal activities in Lynwood. The areas were targeted because they are hot spots for activities such as illegal dumping, prostitution and general crime.
Lynwood Public Safety Officers monitor the cameras on a regular basis and it seems to be working. Since the mobile cameras have be place in their present locations, they have not noticed new illegal activities.
The City plans to implement several more cameras in problem areas to continue to make Lynwood a safe place to live, work, and play.
