Press Releases


In a collaborative and strategic effort to enhance public safety and bolster security measures, the City of Carson proudly announces the implementation of a state-of-the-art citywide surveillance security cameras system. The collaborative effort involves the City of Carson and the Carson Sheriff’s Department for the License Plate Recognition (LPR) Camera Project. The LPR Cameras, which are equipped with advanced technology and web interface will assist in improving dispatch units and increase stolen vehicle recovery. The security cameras throughout the city offer real-time monitoring capabilities, high-definition video footage, and intelligent analytics which will reduce suspicious activity.

With the safety and security of residents and visitors at the forefront, the City Council awarded a multi-million-dollar project to install cameras throughout the city. The installation was projected to take one year but was completed in half the time. The newly installed surveillance cameras are strategically placed throughout key areas of the city, including high traffic areas, parks, transportation hubs and other public spaces.

Mayor Lula Davis-Holmes expressed confidence in the effectiveness of the City’s efforts to enhance public safety. “The safety and well-being of our residents are of utmost importance. These surveillance cameras will serve as a powerful tool in our efforts to create a safer and more secure environment for everyone in our community. Carson is the “Jewel of the South Bay” which must be treasured and protected.”

In addition to its primary function of crime prevention and detection, the citywide surveillance system can provide valuable support in emergency response situations, traffic management and event monitoring.

The City of Carson remains committed to finding new ways to use technology and innovation to safeguard the lives and property of its residents, while also respecting individual privacy rights. All surveillance activities will be conducted in accordance with relevant laws and regulations, with strict protocols in place to ensure responsible use of surveillance data.

Residents are still encouraged that if they see something, say something. If they have any concerns about suspicious activity, they must notify local authorities. The consistent efforts of residents in conjunction with the new surveillance system can make a monumental difference in the safety of the city. Carson is as secure as the plans put in place to protect it.
