The City of Manhattan Beach (City) is a full service City with a population of over 36,000. The City
Department of Public Works is soliciting proposals from experienced and qualified consultants for
the City Facility Security Camera Project (Project). The City wishes to implement a video
monitoring system (VMS) at seven (7) City facilities and requires assistance in identifying the
appropriate scope of work, budget, and schedule for implementing a VMS at those facilities.
Recently, the City’s Safety Committee recently conducted a threat assessment at City Hall. One
of the recommendations from this assessment was to install security cameras, to address safety
concerns and assist in monitoring City Hall. As an extension to this recommendation,
management directed staff to consider six (6) additional facilities for security cameras.
Currently, the City uses an NVR camera system on the 1st Floor level of City Hall and within the
Police Department. Additionally, the City uses the S2 Security ecosystem to manage the access
control system for several City facilities.
Project Description
The purpose of this project is to identify the scope of work, budget, scheduling and next steps
required from the City to install a complete security camera system, in-place and fully-functioning
at the following City facilities: City Hall, Police Department, Fire Department, Live Oak Park,
Joslyn Community Center, Manhattan Heights Park, and Public Works Facility. The scope of
work should be appropriate to meet the City’s current video monitoring needs, yet flexible to
expand if the City wishes additional security cameras at any of the facilities. The City’s budget for
installing the security camera system at the seven (7) facilities is $300,000.
