Flock Safety Grant Program

City of Rancho Palos Verdes
Homeowner’s Association Security Camera Grant Program 2021 Expansion   

**The budget limit has been reached. Applications are no longer being accepted at this time. Please direct any questions to mbright@rpvca.gov.**

Background

The City of Rancho Palos Verdes seeks to provide its residents with opportunities to further enhance community safety by strengthening neighborhood vigilance and security. Continuing these efforts by following the City’s Public Safety Strategic Plan and implementing the City Council’s Goals, the City has expanded its Homeowners Association (HOA) Security Camera Grant Program to allow HOAs and neighborhoods to purchase Flock Safety cameras to monitor vehicles on neighborhood streets.

Security cameras are proven deterrents and effective tools in crime prevention and crime-solving efforts. Flock Safety’s mission is to eliminate non-violent crime. This is possible with crime-fighting technology that provides coverage for the entire neighborhood. When a crime occurs, Flock Safety license plate reading cameras give law enforcement the actionable evidence needed to solve crime.
