Authorities plan to unveil a security camera surveillance system Thursday designed to help fight crime in the western San Fernando Valley.
Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis Zine and police officials planned an afternoon news conference to describe the system.
The system features mobile, wireless security cameras that use Verizon 4G technology. It was funded when the Los Angeles City Council approved a motion by Zine to transfer $679,830 for the project.
The cameras will provide security surveillance in areas patrolled by the Los Angeles Police Department's West Valley and Topanga areas. Such surveillance camera systems are in operation in other areas of the city.
