WeHo Smart City Public Safety Pilots connect cameras and security technology owned by residents, businesses, and the city to create a safer, more unified community.  Through community partnerships with residents and businesses, pilot programs are being implemented to test innovative public safety technologies that are intended to create an environment of safety through preventative and proactive measures.  The initiative is comprised of three pilot program components discussed below. 

For more information on these pilot programs, contact the City's Innovation Analyst, Kate Kigongo, at

City Security Camera Pilot

The City has installed a pilot project of advanced high definition security cameras at five of its busiest intersections along Santa Monica Boulevard.  The cameras will not only provide a public safety benefit, but also enable the collection of valuable traffic and pedestrian data.  Through a collaboration of the City's Innovation and Public Safety divisions, the LA County Sheriff's Department, and our technology partners, the security camera pilot will test the latest sophisticated technology and determine the most suitable long term solution for its public safety needs. The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department maintains an ALPR camera at one location along Santa Monica Boulevard and follows this privacy policy.  

Local BusinessVideo Sharing Program

In response to interest from the community, the City of West Hollywood is exploring the expansion of a pilot program to install public safety cameras in key locations throughout the City. West Hollywood’s business community is a critical resource in addressing public safety. Private security footage can fill in gaps if a citywide public safety video system is installed in the future.

The City’s Innovation Division, in partnership with the Public Safety Department, Business Development Division, and the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department, surveyed businesses to help the City identify areas that are under-served by privately owned commercial security cameras.
Ring Camera Discount Program

The City of West Hollywood partnered with Ring to provide residents a $100 instant rebate towards the ownership of one of their advanced home security camera products.

The rebate program is now closed.
