Interim District 2 City Councilman Ed Harris revealed June 7 that a security camera will be installed on the San Diego Police Department’s trailer at the foot of Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach to monitor illegal activity and deter bad behavior along the seawall.

The camera equipment was donated by SIDUS Solutions, LLC to the Police Officers Association on behalf of the Ocean Beach Community Foundation. SIDUS is a full-service manufacturer based in San Diego that offers integrated subsea and hazardous area security and surveillance solutions.

“Since taking office, I have heard from Ocean Beach residents, community leaders and business owners about bothersome and illegal behavior taking place along the seawall. Law enforcement officers told me a security camera would assist their efforts in cracking down on illegal activity at the beach. I am grateful to SIDUS for this generous donation,” said Harris.

The announcement was made at a law-enforcement appreciation barbecue at Veterans’ Plaza, hosted by the Ocean Beach MainStreet Association Crime Prevention Committee, the Ocean Beach Community Development Corporation, Cleaner Streets Initiative (CSI-OB) and the Ocean Beach Town Council.

“Councilman Ed Harris is bringing new public-safety resources to our community,” said Gretchen Kinney Newsom, president of the Ocean Beach Town Council. “We’re thankful for his efforts and we hope that the new security camera will be an additional tool to preserve, protect and enhance our quality of life.”
