TITLE
Recommendation to authorize City Manager to execute a License Agreement with DDR Corp., an Ohio Corporation, to allow the Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) access to the video surveillance camera systems that monitor the exterior grounds and interior parking structure that make up the Pike properties. (Citywide)

DISCUSSION
In August of 2012, the LBPD launched the Long Beach Common Operating Picture (LBCOP) system, which initially supported 400 City-wide cameras that can produce real-time video feeds, and in two short years, quickly grew to approximately 750 city-wide cameras. Along with LBCOP, LBPD also launched the Community Camera Partnership (CCP), which connects the security (surveillance) cameras of Long Beach businesses, organizations, institutions, and residential complexes. Businesses or residential property owners who would like to participate in the CCP provide LBPD with their location's internet protocol address, which permits officers to access the feed whenever needed. In the event of a security concern, LBCOP can connect to cameras located in public areas, like those in parks, beaches and business corridors, as well as privately-owned cameras already located in businesses throughout the City, to create a network of live or archived video feeds to be viewed from a monitoring station where operators can relay information to officers tracking suspects and criminals in the field.

The LBPD would like to enter into a license agreement with DDR Corp. to provide access to their existing surveillance camera system. Access to these surveillance cameras will provide better situational awareness when events occur in and around the Pike at Rainbow Harbor property and parking structures. This agreement will increase the overall number of cameras and businesses that participate in the CCP and increase visibility for LBCOP.
