"Beverly Hills’ roughly 60 cameras per 1,000 residents ranks it among the most surveilled cities in the world"


Los Angeles, by comparison, has roughly 35,000 cameras and 4 million people — or about 9 for every 1,000 residents.


The city has about 2,000 closed-circuit cameras — nearly 1 for every 17 residents — along with others at many intersections that snap photos of drivers going through red lights, as well as drones and dozens of devices that can read license plates


The ultimate goal?

“Ubiquitous coverage”

But also from last week:

Beverly Hills residents wake up to antisemitic fliers — again.


The Beverly Hills Police Department is investigating and attempting to identify the people behind Saturday’s fliers.
