New surveillance cameras are keeping a watchful eye near the Children’s Pool at Casa Beach in La Jolla.

The four cameras are owned and operated by the San Diego Police Department. They can pan nearly 360 degrees, and zoom in on a license plate from about one-quarter mile away.

The new surveillance is part of a response to the home invasion and violent rapes of two college students in Mission Beach in 2006.

A series of cameras were installed in Mission Beach last year.
