The Temecula City Council this week will be considering the purchase of a $4 million dollar surveillance system that would be designed and installed by Convergint Technologies of Illinois.
The new system will enhance public safety, according to the staff report for the council, by consolidating the city’s existing systems on a new platform.
Convergint, which was recently purchased by L.A.-based Ares Management, was deemed the most qualified of the three vendors that were vetted by the city’s selection panel, which graded the proposals last year.
The new system includes installation of new cameras at dozens of traffic intersections and 24 public sites, such as the city’s big parks and the new park-and-ride on Temecula Parkway.
The cameras will be used for “emergency operations, traffic control and public safety.”
The council meets at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Civic Center’s council chambers.
