Los Angeles Hospital Receives Funding For Additional Security

TORRANCE, Calif. – A $504,000 federal Homeland Security grant approved by Los Angeles County supervisors will fund improvements to the security system at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

Officials plan to add new checkpoints to the hospital’s entrances in an effort to control access as well as enable administration to contact police in an emergency, activating card-only access to the building. The upgrade is expected to protect hospital staff and patients from criminals – a problem the hospital has dealt with in the past.

The system is expected to be in place by the end of the year.
