Chinatown Cameras

District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin, Mayor London Breed, and the Office of Economic and Workforce Development announced the installation of 18 new public safety cameras along Stockton Street in Chinatown.

Breed said the cameras were part of a broader public safety effort in Chinatown, including expanding the number of beat police and making it easier for people to report crimes. The high-definition cameras cover Stockton from the tunnel at Sacramento Street to Washington Street.

Peskin said he was pleased that the city installed the cameras. “Two years ago, I funded increased public safety resources at the Ping Yuen housing projects, including security cameras. Building on the success of that camera program, I allocated $45,000 from the Chinatown Central Subway Mitigation Fund to outfit the Stockton corridor with state-of-the-art security cameras,” said Peskin. “Central Station has also committed an increased police presence on Stockton Street. We know that the best way to ensure the public feels safe in their neighborhoods is to listen to the feedback from residents and merchants.”
