Operation Secure San Diego
The City of San Diego is fortunate to have such a low crime rate; however we are constantly looking for new methods to reduce crime even further. The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) is very excited to be the first law enforcement agency in the region to deliver video streaming technology to a police vehicle while enroute to a call. This will be one more addition to our crime fighting effort in the City of San Diego.
The SDPD in conjunction with the Hotel Indigo is starting "Operation Secure San Diego". This is the first private group allowing SDPD to have access to their live video transmissions. How this works is that from inside their vehicle, officers will be able to connect to the live video feed used by Hotel Indigo and they will be able to see what is going on inside the business when a crime is occurring in a real time environment.
This method of supplying video to our first responder while enroute to the call is a force multiplier that will serve as both a deterrent and a crime solving tool - ultimately making our community a safer place.
The SDPD is encouraging additional partners throughout this pilot program. Additional information and an application to participate in this program can be found by clicking on the following link Operation Secure San Diego Forms.
We are very cognizant of the impact this may have on privacy issues and the public's perception of being on video. The SDPD can assure you that we have procedures in place that allow the viewing only when summoned to the Hotel Indigo (or any additional partner) for a service call.
