One of San Diego's most popular bays will soon have an extra set of eyes. Fourteen security cameras are going to be installed at 12 different spots along the city's Mission Bay as part of a federal security initiative.
The project, which is funded by the Department of Homeland Security, was first introduced by the city in the spring of 2009. After several months of review, the grant was approved in September of that year and San Diego received $385,000, according to U-T San Diego.
The cameras will be set up on light poles, boat ramps and lifeguard chairs. City spokesperson Darren Pudgil said the captured footage will be sent to federal law-enforcement agents as well as local police to help reduce crime in the area.
San Diego isn't the only city in California making security headlines. A Sacramento mother recently began using an intelligent home security system to keep an eye on her two daughters while she is at work via her smartphone, according to The Modesto Bee.

Authorities in Ogden, Utah, are planning to expand the town’s video surveillance system network by adding more security cameras and increasing police access to cameras throughout the school district.
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, where police relied on video surveillance system footage to identify the suspects, a new poll shows that the vast majority of Americans would support the installation of video surveillance cameras in public areas.
Although the video surveillance system industry was already projected to expand a great deal in the coming years, it's likely to get an even bigger boost following the bombings at the Boston Marathon.
