San Diego Police to Monitor Live Stream From Schools

SAN DIEGO — Police here will soon be able to monitor live streaming video from 70 of the city’s roughly 200 campuses, an added measure of security in the wake of school shooting in Newtown, Conn. 

The officers’ ability to monitor the video from their patrol car laptop, possibly unique in the state, was among the reasons Mayor Bob Filner said that the city is well-poised to protect its children, according to the North County Times

Police Chief William Lansdowne disclosed the video measure during a City Hall news conference on Dec. 17 where he, Filner, school officials and others sought to allay concerns of worried parents, students and school workers. 

“We want to assure the community we are doing everything we can,” Lansdowne said.
