Approving Installation of Cameras at San Pablo Park and Environmental Safety Assessment 
From: Mayor Arreguin and Councilmembers Maio and Hahn 
Recommendation: Adopt the following recommendations to address violent crime in and around San Pablo Park:

Therefore, the City Council finds that these conditions meet the definition of “Exigent Circumstances” and approves the installation and use park cameras in San Pablo Park, and requests that the City Manager install cameras as expediently as possible. Long-term use of cameras requires City Council approval within 90 days after commencement of the surveillance technology as required by Berkeley Municipal Code Section 2.99.040.
