SOLEDAD, Calif. - Soledad city officials have announced they will be installing cameras and a wireless network throughout the City of Soledad.
At a cost of $105,000, the network will consist of 11 new cameras being installed at all city assets, city egress/ingress, and areas deemed hot spots for crime. Additionally, the cameras will be fully integrated with the City’s existing cameras at City Hall and the Police Department.
“This technology allows us the opportunity to play a proactive role in preventing crime in our community,” said Michael McHatten, City Manager, City of Soledad. “In suppressing crime, we are making sure that our residents are able to freely enjoy everything that makes Soledad so great.”
“Our ability to keep our community safe is one of the largest reasons why we have been able to receive so much investment from outside industries, including tourists,” said Fred Ledesma, Mayor, City of Soledad. “As the Gateway to the Pinnacles, we have a responsibility, not only to our residents, but to the countless tourists that spend time in our beautiful community.”
