Sherman Oaks isn't exactly a haven for crime, but that didn't stop business owners, who were constantly plagued with break ins and graffiti, to band together and pony up money to the LAPD for surveillance cameras like those on Hollywood Boulevard. Together with the Sherman Oaks Neighborhood Council and Councilman Jack Weiss' office, they bought five live feed cameras that will officially be announced tomorrow at the LAPD's Van Nuys Division. Cameras will be located along Ventura and Van Nuys Boulevards at:

  • Calhoun and Ventura Blvd.
  • Two at Cedros and Ventura Blvd.
  • Van Nuys Blvd and Ventura Blvd.
  • Milbank and Van Nuys Blvd.

To see these cameras in action from the LAPD's vantage point, check out our video from the Hollywood Division's camera room.
