Motorola, Inc. has joined Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Chief of Police William Bratton to unveil a wireless network and video surveillance system in the city’s Jordan Downs housing complex.

The wireless network is a part of a project designed to help curb criminal activity and provide a safe environment for residents in one of the city’s most notorious high-crime public housing areas.

The deployment was spearheaded by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in a partnership with the United States Department of Justice and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. The network encompasses ten wireless video surveillance cameras and the Motorola MOTOMESH network, a multi-radio wireless broadband network that provides WiFi access for the public and first responders through separate, dedicated and secure access.??

Chief Bratton said: “Since the cameras were installed, major crime has dropped 32 percent in Jordan Downs in the last two months, compared to the same period last year.”
